TRAPPED IN A SMALL TOWN...
Calvin has grown up in a town with no phones. No televisions. No windows. A town that no stranger ever visits. And a town where no one under the age of twenty one has ever seen the open sky.
There’s not much work available, but the citizens have found ways to pass the time. Some bury themselves in books. Some have become religious fanatics. And some play ever more complicated games of sex and manipulation.
And one of them has murdered Calvin’s father.
Calvin needs to find out why. And he’d better do it fast. Because right now, he’s the only suspect.
They’re coming for him. And there’s nowhere to run.

Snappy dialogue and story carries
I enjoyed this read very much. The dialogue was completely credible, contemporary and engaging, and I was quickly drawn into the story.
Hartman does it again!
If you liked The City of Ember you will love The Buried Sky! The story follows Calvin, a teenager born and raised underground after the end of the world. It touches on the subject of what people would do if they were stuck underground for 20 + years. What if you had read every book in the library? It is a more realistic account of survival with a murder mystery twist. And as always Hartman's plot and characters are top notch. A real page turner that I didn't want to put down.
