Where the World Ends

Based on a true story set in St Kilda "Where the World Ends" written by Geraldine Mc Caughrean is a dark boy to man story with the feel of a Scottish retelling of "Lord of the Flies". This story starts out much more in its characters control but slowly spirals down into a tale of survival, how religion can be used as a tool to control and rule and paranoia. The author tells this story through the eyes of Quill who at the start unintentionally foretells his story arc by remarking how boys came to the sea stac but left it men. This story catches you by surprise and drags you into it without warning just like the waves in the story.
