Gregor is a boy with nothing extraordinary about him. Until one day, he falls through an air vent in search of his baby sister. He tumbles down into a dangerous, deadly underground world known as the 'Underland'. Here, human beings live in a delicate harmony with giant bats, spiders, rats and other unsavory creatures. Gregor has no choice but to become a part in this story in order to save himself and his family from certain doom!
This is an excellent middle grade book for students who love the Hunger Games series. Good for students in grades 4 through 8.
