Winner of the YA Book Prize 2018

Shortlisted for The CILIP Carnegie Medal 2018

The Chapel is burning out of control, its roof engulfed by roaring fire...the amplified voice of the Government booms across the compound...
'PUT DOWN YOUR WEAPONS AND COME FORWARD SLOWLY WITH YOUR HANDS IN THE AIR'

Father John controls everything inside The Fence. And Father John likes rules.

Especially about never talking to Outsiders. Because Father John knows the truth.

He knows what is right, and what is wrong.

He knows what is coming.

But Moonbeam is starting to see the lies behind Father John's words. She wants him to be found out.

What if the only way out of the darkness is to light a fire?
