Summary

When a new boy arrives to the mines where Newt lives, Newt starts to question everything that he has been told about the dark, subterranean world he has always lived and worked in.

Life in Bearmouth is one of hard labour, the sunlit world above the mine a distant memory. Reward will come in the next life with the benevolence of the Mayker. Newt accepts everything - that is, until the mysterious Devlin arrives. Suddenly, Newt starts to look at Bearmouth with a fresh perspective, questioning the system, and setting in motion a chain of events that could destroy their entire world.

NOTE : Contains a scene of attempted rape, and some graphic scenes of murder. The book is written using a mixture of phonetic and 'wrong' spellings, reflecting the way Newt speaks.

NOTE: Branford Boase Award Winner 2020
