Underland, beneath New York City, " humans live uneasily beside giant spiders, bats, cockroaches, and rats, but the fragile peace is about to fall apart."

Gregor the Overlander

by Suzanne Collins

How do eleven-year-old Gregor and his two-year-old sister find themselves in an underground world filled with giant spiders, rats, cockroaches, and bats? Will war break out between the creepy creaturers when their fragile alliance is shattered? How can cockroaches become fast friends with humans? Will the two kids get crunched in the conflicts? Can Gregor become a hero who solves a huge mystery that will change him forever?

Bet you won't be able to read this one in a dark room by yourself!
