In the thrilling sequel to Exchange Day, the students of The Mirador School discover a world they never knew existed: a world full of sunlight, strange animals, and, most shockingly, other people. They uncover the truth about the school at the bottom of the ocean: the war that kept them trapped in the dark was nothing more than a rumor perpetrated by power and fear.
Alexander Mori takes us on a journey from the shores of nearby islands to the poisonous mainland and back to the depths of the dark ocean. The students’ adventures reveal fierce creatures roaming through mysterious, lost cities; a tribe on the brink of extinction within an unknown world; and truths about their teachers and their new world that force them to question everything and learn to trust their instincts.
Hand In The Dark explores innocence, tyranny, trust, and deceit. At its core, it’s a coming-of-age story that follows 12 teens as they discover the unpredictable world around them. They are searching for a peaceful way to live in a new world fraught with new dangers. They seek the truth. But they find so much more.
