Desperate, driven, harassed to the breaking point, Slake decides to go underground—into the sheltering depths of the New York City Subway where he ends up staying for one hundred and twenty-one days. This is the story about survival, and about a 13-year-old misfit's attempts to find footing in a hostile and threatening world.

From the Back Cover:

"--utterly convincing in its detail and moving in its concern and admiration for the stubborn, human will to survive." -New York Times Book Review
