Sam lives outside the fence, in an area known as the de-reg zone. Here, there are no schools, no libraries, and very few books. Children must survive in any way they can. One day, trawling through the local rubbish dump, Sam comes across a book. He takes it to the one person he knows who can read - Old Man David. Old Man David will teach him to read - but is he willing to pay the price?
