 Synopsis  Information
THE INDUSTRY pulls no punches - a tautly written thriller that bristles with danger, mystery, tension and suspense by one of the most exciting new voices in young adult literature. Ages 14+ Kirra Hayward is an ordinary sixteen year old - smarter than most, but otherwise completely anonymous. When she stumbles across an unusual puzzle on the internet and manages to solve it, she has no idea of what she's letting herself in for. Kidnapped by a shadowy organisation known only as the Industry, Kirra soon discovers how valuable her code-breaking skills are. And when she stubbornly refuses to help them, they decide to break her any means at their disposal. Kirra knows that to protect herself, she must trust no one, not even her fellow prisoner, Milo. But as time goes by she realises he might be the only person she can rely on ...Compulsive and page-turning, tHE INDUStRY is the first in a new series from talented debut author Rose Foster.
