A beautifully crafted dystopian novel from award-winning author Meg McKinlay. A thought-provoking and challenging middle grade novel about an isolated society rocked by the consequences of a tiny discovery. Jena is the leader of the line, a job every girl in the village dreams of.
Watched over by the Mothers as one of the chosen seven, years spent denying herself food and wrapping her limbs have paid off.
She is small enough to tunnel into the mountain and gather the harvest, risking her life with each mission.
This has always been the way of things, but change is coming.
When her suspicions begin to heighten, Jena starts to question things and the boundaries of her world shift irrevocably.
