Waterstones Says

In a subterranean society, a young labourer begins to question the system in this claustrophobic yet invigorating dystopia from debut novelist Liz Hyder. 

Winner of the Waterstones Children's Book Older Fiction Award 2020

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. New 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. In this powerful and brilliantly original debut novel, friendship creates strength, courage is hard-won and hope is the path to freedom.
