Product description

Winner of the 2018 Carnegie Medal.

What does the end of the world look like? Is it a global disaster? Is it a path that tails off into nowhere? Or is it just an ordinary place? Every summer, Quill and the young men of St Kilda are put ashore on a remote sea stack, where they hunt birds to feed the island folk. But this summer, no one shows up to take them home. Why have they all been abandoned – cold, starving and clinging to life, in the grip of the murderous ocean? Surely nothing but the end of the world can explain it. How will they survive?

  • A bleak and beautiful thriller by a master storyteller
  • Gripping historical storytelling based on true events
  • Geraldine McCaughrean is the author of The Kite Rider
  • She has won the Carnegie Medal and Blue Peter Prize
