Teen review: “Gregor the Overlander” by Suzanne Collins

You may have heard about “The Hunger Games,” which happens to be on a rampage since the movie premiered. If you enjoyed that book, then you may enjoy some other Suzanne Collins’ books, such as “Gregor the Overlander,” which was nominated for a Bluebonnet Book Award in 2006. This book is written from the perspective of a boy, Gregor, who falls through a hole in the laundry room of his apartment building and finds himself in a world that’s entirely underground. He and his younger sister, Boots, try to get the underworlder people to help them return home, only to find out that their father, who had disappeared mysteriously years ago, has been trapped there by giant rats, enemies of the underworlders. Gregor must first rescue his father before he and his sister can return home and escape the underworld. Suzanne Collins has a knack for writing books that are page-turners. -Aedan, Central TLLC, 15
