Gregor the Overlander
I finished Gregor the Overlander last week. Suzanne Collins, author of The Hunger Games, wrote this cute story about a boy and his little sister who fall into a modern-day urban-like rabbit hole and find themselves beneath New York City in the fantastical world called the Underland.
At first, all Gregor wants is to get home, but he soon finds a purpose in the Underland that will save his family and the entire Underland's hope of survival.
It's light and cute. I was able to put it down several times, but I kept going back, curious about what would happen to Boots and Gregor. I'd qualify it as Juvenile fiction, although there are some violent parts. It's a great adventure story for kids. I totally recommend it.
It's also part of a five-book series called The Underland Chronicles!
Fly you high, readers!
