A wonderfully fast paced, thrilling insight into one of today's most pressing issues, THE TRAP is as good as it gets in British teen fiction. I'm a big fan of Alan's work, and this is one of his very best. Authentic and unflinching, it is a novel you have to read. An excellent new work from a great writer.

Cathy Cassidy, bestselling author of THE CHOCOLATE BOX GIRLS series
Gibbons has produced a high octane thriller that is totally gripping as a story but picks its way beneath the surface . . . and skilfully unwraps some of the issues
The Trap is a frighteningly contemporary young adult thriller that doesn't shy away from tackling difficult issues head on.
Linda Wilson, Crime Review
