Had a superb day reading this fabulous book. Gritty, thought provoking, enjoyable, I want there to be a sequel. This should be in every school library. Hunger Games / The Power. Absolutely brilliant. Thanks to @klkettle for an Excellent read.
Jude is running out of time. Once a year, lucky young men in the House of Boys are auctioned to the female elite. But if Jude fails to be selected before he turns seventeen, a future deep underground in the mines awaits...
