Running Hot


Author: Dreda Say Mitchell
Elijah `Schoolboy' Campbell is taking a great offer to leave Hackney behind and start a new life, but he has just seven days to get out of a London underworld where bling, ringtones, and petty deaths are accessories of life. Schoolboy knows that when you're running hot all it takes is one call, one voicemail, one text to disconnect you from this life - permanently. A stark, moving, and funny account of a largely hidden world.
