As life on the surface grows harsher, her little brother Tin, so fated in his family’s life even deeper into a subterranean world of darkness and troubling secrets of wandering, until his memory becomes a myth barely whispered around the countryside. Harper must learn to let wild Tin go, like so much of what she loves. But will the child in her leave with him? (Samara Dibble, Mansfield High School)
