Review in the Irish Examiner

How great is this - a review of Planet Hell in the Irish Examiner by Mary Arrigan, who describes it as ...

... a futuristic, nail-biting dystopian tale set in the labyrinthine underground tunnels of what remains of planet Earth. Like his late father, teenage Sam works at mining ore under the authority of The Gang, who inflict severe punishment on anyone who steps away from the rigorous rules. Instilled with horrific stories of life above ground, nobody ever leaves. Except Sam. When he stands up to The Gang, he is pursued through the tunnels. When he can go no further the choices are to venture up to the Surface or be killed. For age eight and an encouraging read for reluctant older readers.

 Thank you very much!  And just because I like the cover so much, here it is again -
