The Night People
by C. S. Hand
The Night People have been visiting Sam for ten years, since he was five. They’re scary and he has no idea what they want. Then Jade moves to town. Together, they explore the filthy chat piles outside of town, uncover a secret military base, and are transported (by the Night People?) into a mysterious underground world. Do the Night People live down here? Do the military know about them? Why does Sam keep having murky visions of round rooms and environmental devastation? Sam and Jade are on their own. Adults can’t help and wouldn’t believe them anyway. And their own teen problems and the feelings they’re developing for each other make it harder and harder to concentrate on the Night People.
