CJ Lemons | 3 comments So what I remember is a young boy gets trapped in some sort of structure or location surrounded by evil rats that won't go near sunlight. (view spoiler) I also remember there being something about a ship at the very end that was full of more rats and possibly it ended up on fire, not sure.

I honestly don't remember much else. I know it had to be at least 15 years ago when I read it.

Rebekah kjos (kjosr) | 4 comments Not sure but it kind of sounds like the Whipping Boy? The rats don't come in until later though so IDK if that's the right title.

Rebekah, are you thinking of The Whipping Boy by Sid Fleischman?

Alexis (Nidhogg) | 43 comments Found this via Google. The Dark Portal by Robin Jarvis. First of the Deptford Mice trilogy. I also initially thought of "The Whipping Boy," but there's no king rat in that one.

CJ Lemons | 3 comments Hmm, neither sound right. I'm fairly certain it was a boy, or could have been a girl, not a mouse.


Nachelle | 154 comments I'm pretty positive this is The Battle for the Castle by Elizabeth Winthrop.
