Told who to cheer for, who to believe in, Yuri grows up in a country where no freedom of thought is encouraged - where even one's neighbours are encouraged to report any dissension to the authorities.
But it is still a shock when a few careless words lead him to a virtual death-sentence - sent on a nightmare journey up north to a camp amidst the frozen wastes.
What, or who, can he possibly believe in now? Can he even survive? And is escape possible ...?

Review by Ma_Washigeri
Aarggh. I have enjoyed Anne Fines books in the past - but this one I read the first few chapters, flicked through the rest and read the last chapter. I can see it might inspire some people but maybe I'm finally growing out of my adolescence.
