you ever thought about what could be running around underground, in the
sewers of a big city, especially a city like New York? Youíve heard tales
of large rats and urban legends about alligators, but what if there really
was something down there? What it there were another whole city far below
the subway tunnels and the sewer pipes? An entirely different culture with
a different way of dressing, and talking, and living? What would it be
like? Can you imagine it? Lindsay meets Talon when he breaks into
her house looking for medicine to help his sick sister. Break-in isnít
really the right word for it. Talon just climbs up out of a hole in the
floor of the apartment where Lindsay lives with her father and step-brother.
Talon is not like any of the boys Lindsayís met, and she soon finds out
why. Who is Talon? Where did he come from? To find the answers to these
puzzling questions, read Downsiders by Neal Shusterman. (New
