Set in South Africa, "MindF**k" is a powerful, disturbing, and at times frightening story. Chris Burns, and his friends - Kerbs and Sky Eyes - take to the road, heading for the MindF**k rock festival. Along the way they pick up the gorgeous Partygirl. Burns and Partygirl connect immediately. But on the first night, while the rockmusic blasts from the stage, something unexpected happens - Burns' world gets turned on its head as one of the boys emerges from the tent with blood on his hands. "MindF**k" is a real page-turner. The gripping, character-focused, first-person narrative delves right to the heart of a life on-the-edge and virtually out of control. Gritty, hard-hitting, and often shocking, it is packed with drama, emotion, suspense and intrigue from one page to the next. And there is a serious sting in the tail. "MindF**k" is part of the "Cutting Edge" series: fast-paced, quick reads for teens and young adults looking for fiction which chimes with their perspective on life.
