More information:


A taut and eerie novel of suspense from one of Britain's most acclaimed young writers.

On a spring day in England, six teenagers venture to a neglected part of their school where there is a door to a small windowless cellar. Behind the door, the old stairs have rotted away. A boy unfurls a rope ladder and five descend into The Hole. The sixth closes the door, locks it from the outside, and walks calmly away. The plan is simple: They will spend three days locked in The Hole and emerge to become part of the greatest prank the school has ever seen. But something goes terribly wrong. No one is coming back to let them out ... ever.

Suspenseful and disturbing, "The Hole" is an unforgettable novel of physical endurance, psychological survival, and unforgettable revelations made all the more stunning by its shocking end.
