I read this book when I was a kid, absolutely loved it, and though I can remember the feeling of reading it, remember nearly nothing about it!

It was some other world, where this society or village lived in a forest, high up in the trees. The main protagonist was a curious girl.

No one was allowed down to the bottom I think, or maybe someone was sacrificed and thrown down there sometimes? I just remember there being a dark secret about the bottom of the forest and she eventually goes down there. Also maybe there were blue lights in their village?

I know it's a really vague description but if anyone knows something like this, it would be amazing!

Thank you! x

    Sounds like Green Sky series, but unfortunately I haven't actually read it.

    Was it just me who read the subject as being about a girl with no bottom in a forest? :O

    @JaneS. That's a webcomic called The Meek.

It sounds almost exactly like Below the Root. The girl is teamed up with a boy with a sick little sister. They're part of a kind of priesthood. Everyone glides through the trees using special clothes & used to use something similar to the Force. And I think the blue lights are moths or some kind of creepy crawly. If you read the illustrated version, the drawings are pretty distinctive, they might jog your memory.
