Fourteen-year-old army cadet, Chloe Cummings, is on an outback bivouac with her cadet unit near the tiny North Queensland town of Mingela when mischief begins.
Chloe looks sixteen but acts eighteen and has many enemies in camp. She has a reputation for scandalous behaviour, and the lady Officers of Cadets are watching like hawks for any misbehaviour to get her and her best friend, Jane, discharged.
But during a field exercise, her cadet unit witnesses the murder of a bikie gang member, thrusting them into a deadly pursuit that will test their characters, physical abilities and training to the absolute limit.
Join Chloe as she and her unit struggle to survive against the evil bikie gang and harsh environment of the outback.
