On top of the world

On the edge of the world is an amazing award-winning book by Geraldine McCaughrean, who is one of the UK's most respected and awarded children's book authors.

Every summer, Quill and his friends

set ashore on a distant seashore to catch birds.

But this summer no one is coming to pick them up.

Is there any explanation as to why they were abandoned on the drangan in the middle of the stormy sea - cold, hungry, with their lives on the line - other than that

the end of the world has happened?

How are they supposed to survive?
