Every girl dreams of being part of the line - the chosen seven who tunnel deep into the mountain to find the harvest. No work is more important. Jena is the leader of the line - strong, respected, reliable. And - as all girls must be - she is small; her years of training have seen to that. It is not always easy but it is the way of the things. And so a girl must wrap her limbs, lie still, deny herself a second bowl of stew. Or a first. But what happens when one tiny discovery makes Jena question everything she has ever known? What happens when moving a single stone changes everything?

I was captured by this book. First the title and then the very original story line. The writer helped you to imagine how it would feel to be tunnelling under the earth, with tons of rock above and crevices below. The intrigue and lies of the elderly women gave another dimension. The plot twist and turns as intricately as the tunnels the girls travelled underground. Although I could see the outcome coming, the ending was very satifying.

An intriguing title nominated for the 2016 Children's Book Week awards. Caught me from the first page and I just had to read more!
