When science-obsessed teenager Itch discovers a powerful new radioactive element, he’s forced to go on the run to protect it from Greencorp, a sinister organisation seeking to weaponize it.

But when the rock gives Itch radiation poisoning, and his closest friend betrays him, Itch risks losing the rock, putting the entire planet in danger.

Critic reviews

'Itch is a great and thrilling book...that will help kids to understand elements!' (The Guardian)

'It’s an action-packed adventure with some chuckle-worthy moments, appealing protagonists, and a premise derived from plausible scientific theory.' (Publishers Weekly)

'Itch is partly an adventurous romp, with one action-packed incident after another, similar in style to the popular Alex Rider series, but it is much more interesting.' (Athol Daily News)
