I dont like maths and I dont like lotteries and I dont like kidnapping- but chucked all together in a book- I might like it!
Game theory has brought me to this point and I must follow where it leads. Even though this is not a game.' Jamie is a sixteen-year-old maths whiz. Summerlee, his older sister, is in the grip of a wild phase. Tensions at home run high. When Summerlee wins a 7.5-million-dollar lottery, she cuts all ties with her family. But money can cause trouble - big trouble. And when Jamie's younger sister Phoebe is kidnapped for ransom, the family faces a crisis almost too painful to bear. Jamie thinks he can use game theory - the strategy of predicting an opponent's actions - to get Phoebe back. But can he outfox the kidnapper? Or is he putting his own and his sister's life at risk? A brilliant, page-turning novel from a superb storyteller.
