Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Watson family moves to the old coal-mining town of Stoneygate to care for Kit's recently widowed grandfather. When Kit meets John Askew, another boy whose family had worked and died in the mines, he invites Kit to join him in playing a game called Death. Kit's association with Askew takes him into the mines where the boys look for the childhood ghosts of their long-gone ancestors. Winner of the Michael L. Printz Award.

Synopsis:

"It was very deep, Kit. Very dark. And every one of us was scared of it. As a lad I'd wake up trembling, knowing that as a Watson born in Stoneygate I'd soon be following my ancestors into the pit".
