Fourth (and Final) Book of the Summer
The last book of the summer falls into the young reader category. Gregor the Overlander is written by Suzanne Collins of the Hunger Games series. Gregor was her first book series.
Gregor is a teenage boy living in New York City with his mom, grandmother, and siblings. His father has been gone for two years. One day Gregor and his baby sister discover an underworld via their laundry room. He becomes known to the underworld residents as Gregor the Overlander and is an integral part in fulfilling/solving a prophecy that was written long ago.
His adventure involves royalty, cockroaches, spiders, rats, and bats. I think this story is great for the late elementary/early middle school reader. I'm excited to read the next books in the series. For an adult, it's a quick read!
