Bog Child by Siobhan Dowd. 18-year-old Fergus runs high in the Irish hills to escape. His brother, an IRA sympathizer, is on a hunger strike in prison, and might die soon. Fergus needs to succeed in school to get to continue his studies. And now even his running is no escape, because he's been asked to be a courier for strange packets he suspects are drugs. When Fergus finds a bog mummy from the year AD 80 he's amazed at how her story parallels his own.
