If you can survive the cleansing, you may have a chance.  The children are being held as slaves for the Speares and are treated harshly and must bring in the quota of shards for the Spears each day.  The Diggers have all been taken from their villages at a young age and cannot remember anything but the work and the cages they live in.  When a new girl arrives, Coriko is surprised that she is so old.  She is beyond the age where the other children have been taken away. But this new girl offers information about the outside. When the Outsiders attack the Speares, will the children find the courage to escape?  Can they find a way out of this life?  And if they do, what awaits them on the outside?
