'Today I shot the girl I love'. GCSE's are over and sixteen-year-old Imogen is looking forward to a perfect, lazy English summer. But her world is turned upside down by three refugees, all hiding from life. Anthony is fourteen, already an outcast, bullied and shunned by his peers. Farid is an asylum seeker from Afghanistan, who has travelled across continents seeking peace. And Gordon Craig is a bitter, lonely man. She knows all of them, but she doesn't know how dangerous they are. Being part of their lives could cost Imogen her own. Supercharged with tension and drama, Alan Gibbon's novel is about what happens when the fabric of normality is ripped apart exposing the terrifying dark beneath.

Reviews

"Gibbons is a writer who wears his political heart on his sleeve...[he] takes readers by the ears and forces them to focus on social injustices of many kinds...In The Dark Beneath, Gibbons shows a softer side, retaining the unflinching focus that characterises his work, this time on the plight of asylum seekers... He challenges his readers to learn from what they read and how his story makes them feel." -- Lindsey Fraser Guardian, 18 November 2003 "This book is amazing and original". Lancashire Book of the Year Reviews, 2005
