Sally Hanson's school is being secretly ruled by Shadow Council; a powerful and brutal group of students. Every autumn Shadow Council holds 'The Lottery', a dreaded ritual which picks a pupil to be the 'victim' - a person who is ignored by the entire school and forced to become Shadow Council's slave.

Sally is this year's victim - and she faces the worst year of her life. Humiliated and isolated, her friends desert her and teachers turn a blind eye. But when Shadow Council's demands become increasingly sinister, Sally begins to suspect that maybe more than bad luck is against her . . .

A dark and powerful psychological thriller from an extraordinary writer.
