Book Details

Sam is one of the Miners who live on Planet Hell, digging ore to power the Earth. It's a nightmarish underground life. Going to the surface means death. Nothing can live there. And then one day, Sam finds a note from the Surface, and learns that everything in his life is a lie.

About the Author

Joan Lennon lives in the Kingdom of Fife, on the River Tay. The Kingdom is said to be shaped like a dog's head. If this is so, her flat is somewhere on the tip of the ear, which explains a lot. She has a husband, four tall sons and one short cat, and plans to go on writing forever. Planet Hell is her first book for A & C Black."
