Author Name:MacPhail, Cathy
A school trip goes disastrously wrong when a visit to local caves turns into something far more sinister.
Five students find themselves trapped beneath the ground.
Their best chance of escape is to stay together.
Then a member of the group disappears, and their hopes of leaving start to fade.
Does one of the remaining four know more than they are letting on, or is there something evil lurking in the caves? The students find themselves struggling for dominance as well as survival .
Smart-mouth Fiona; innocent, always cheerful Angie; prefect (and perfect) Zesh; angry bad-boy Axel; Axel's follower Liam--all are selected for the class trip, spelunking with PE teacher Mr.
The teens hate each other aboveground, but once they go below, circumstances eventually force them to support and care for each other.
MacPhail writes a suspenseful adventure story, sprinkled with Scotttish slang, which will attract males and females alike.
The author teases readers with the characters' personal obstacles, such as asthma, fear of small spaces, obesity, indecision, and mean-spiritedness--all potentially dangerous under the conditions.
The legend of a cave-dwelling giant worm adds further suspense.
Reminiscent of reality TV, this page-turner will draw eager readers.
