There is only one rule in the Mines: No one climbs the Ladder.Sixteen year-old Joe has spent his life laboring underground with hundreds of other kids. He’s obeyed the rule and done his job slinging mud in dim and dirty tunnels. But at night he dreams of a high blue sky, green fields and a gleaming, distant city. The dreams are as real as the Ladder, tempting him to climb to a better life.But how can someone dream about a place they’ve never seen? Why are the dreams so compelling? And is the Ladder really the way to freedom—or to something worse than a life underground?
