Back cover copy

There are no men in Claysoot.

There are boys, but every one of them vanishes at midnight on his eighteenth birthday.

The villagers call it the Heist.

Gray Weathersby is prepared to meet his fate. But when he finds a strange note from his mother, he begins questioning everything he's been told about the Heist . . . and what lies beyond the Wall that surrounds his primitive town, which no one can cross and survive. With no answers in sight, Gray must decide whether he should wait to be taken--or risk everything on the hope of the other side.

Review quote

"A dramatic work that is reminiscent of Lois Lowry's The Giver and will appeal to fans of Suzanne Collins's The Hunger Games."--School Library Journal
