Where The World Ends


In the 1770’s, every summer, Quill and his friends are put ashore on a remote sea stac off St Kilda to hunt sea birds. Their community relies on the birds for their living.  At the end of the summer the boys are picked up by boat and return to their families. But this summer, no one arrives to take them home.

Surely nothing but the end of the world can explain why they’ve been abandoned – cold, starving and clinging to life, in the grip of a murderous ocean. How will they survive?

This is a thrilling tale of survival, straight from the history books.

A deserved winner of the CILIP Carnegie Medal 2018.
