Summary Fourteen-year-old Jason Chaser races hover cars. Jason and his brother, "the Bug," have been accepted to the International Race School, where they race against great difficulties. Jason Chaser has the need for speed-hyper speed. With his brother, the Bug, navigating, the fourteen-year-old hover car racing phenom is geared up to take the world by storm. Jason's first stop, however, is the prestigious International Race School, where he has to match skill and will against tyrannical instructors, sabotaged equipment, and the planet's best teenage fliers. Included in that mix are Jason's hometown rival and all-around cretin, Barnaby Becker; American Ariel Piper, the first girl to ever be accepted into race school; and a mysterious driver in black-who never seems to lose. The chills and thrills (and awe-inspiring spills) come fast and furious as New York Times best-selling author Matthew Reilly delivers a pulse-pounding, hard-driving, high-octane, no-holds-barred teen techo-thriller sure to have readers enthralled from starting line to checkered flag.
