'Gripping and surprising. I gulped it down' Sarah CrossanLeah Baxter is a genius.

She's a few wins away from becoming a junior chess grandmaster, and her life is on course to achieve everything her mom and coach want for her.

But Leah is at stalemate - grieving for her father, and feeling suffocated.

She decides to make the ultimate sacrifice and quit chess.

But chess doesn't want to quit her. Soon Leah discovers her new gambit: chessboxing, a dangerous hybrid sport which will test her body and mind to their limits.

Can the pawn become the queen?
