Downsiders by Neal Shusterman
Talon lives in the Downside - the world located underneath New York City. According to Downsider history they have always lived there, safe from the burning rays of the sun that harm the unlucky topsiders. But despite warnings to stay away from the Topside Talon finds himself drawn to some things there, especially Lindsey who has just moved in with her father. Lindsey is drawn to Talon as well and is determined to teach him more about what he is missing on the Topside. But Talon and the rest of the Downsiders might not have any choice about leaving their world left when some digging equipment accidentally breaks through a wall and part of their home is discovered. Now they are faced with a hard decision about their future.
