Wired by Lesley Wilson
"They said I'd be good at it."
Following training, Joanna is deployed to Afghanistan and believes she is prepared for what lies ahead. What she is not prepared for is a visit from her past. As the realities of war close in around her, Joanna struggles to make sense of the voices, memories and flashbacks that wage war inside her head.
Wired was developed in collaboration with the British Army.
