The Black Room by Gillian Cross

Main Character:
Time period: Contemporary
Genre: YA Fiction, Fantasy
Series: The Dark Ground Trilogy #2

Robert has returned to his normal life but he can't forget those left behind, especially Lorn. He enlists his sister, Emma, and his best friend, Tom, to help. When Robert comes upon a boy who has a braided tie on his backpack, he recognizes it as Lorn's handiwork.

In the meantime, Lorn has been exploring their cavern and finds the darkness calling to her. She would like to spend more of her down there but it upsets the others, particularly Bando. With Zak and Cam now gone, Lorn has become the leader.

Again, major questions remain unanswered, but hopefully all will be revealed in the third volume.
