In Gregor the Overlander, the first irresistible novel of the New York Times bestselling series by Suzanne Collins, author of The Hunger Games, young Gregor embarks on a dangerous quest to fulfill his destiny -- and find his father.
When his toddler sister falls through a grate in the laundry room of his apartment building and hurtles into the dark Underland, Gregor has no choice but to try to rescue her. His problems multiply when he discovers that the underground world is not only inhabited by gigantic insects and is on the brink of war. As it turns out, Gregor's arrival is no accident. He is named in a prophecy that foretells the role he is to play in the Underland's uncertain future. Not surprisingly, Gregor wants no part of it until he realizes that he could be the key to solving mystery of his father's disappearance. Gregor embarks on a dangerous adventure that will change both him and the Underland forever.
Bet you won't be able to read this one in a dark room by yourself!
