The Guardian

Eighteen year old Red and her friends are on a road trip in an RV, heading to the beach for Spring Break.

Spirits are high. Until the RV breaks down in the middle of nowhere. And as the wheels are shot out, one by one, the friends realise that this is no accident.

There’s a sniper out there. He’s watching them and he knows exactly who they are. One of the group has a secret that the sniper is willing to kill for.

As a game of cat-and-mouse plays out, the group desperately tries to get help. Buried secrets are forced to light and tensions within the group reach deadly levels. Only one thing is for sure. Not everyone will survive the night . . .

‘A thrill ride.’

The Guardian

'The secrets, suspense and action pushes you to read the entire book in just one sitting, proving yet again Jackson is the queen of young adult novels.'

The Independent (Children’s book of the week, 4/1/2023)

“Holly Jackson, the OG of UK YA thriller writers, has written one of her most exciting novels yet. Five Survive, my Book of the Month, is about a group of teens who set off on a trip for spring break; when they find themselves under attack, they must work out who is trying to shoot them—and why. Set over the course of just a few hours, this taut thriller will keep readers hooked.”

Charlotte Eyre, The Bookseller

Praise for the Good Girl’s Guide to Murder trilogy:

‘A taut, compulsively readable, elegantly plotted thriller' - Guardian

'Jackson ensnares readers in another highly addictive web, woven from the dark shadows of small-town secrets.’

The Observer

“As Good As Dead is a phenomenal YA mystery that deserves to be one of the books of the year and provides a stellar finale to a knockout series."
