GOING WHERE IT’S DARK, by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor


The story: Buck has made the find of a lifetime: the Hole, an underground tunnel leading to what promises to be an unexplored cave. But who’s he going to tell? His best friend and caving pal has just moved away; his family would never let him explore it on his own, and outside his family? His stuttering keeps him from telling anyone anything. Things look up when his speech impediment gets help from an unexpected source, but take a turn for the worse when a group of bullies set on revenge chooses a path that could cost Buck his life.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Here’s an adventure story, an anti-bullying story, and a book that shows if something’s of value, you’d better be prepared to work hard for it. But don’t read it if you’re afraid of the dark!
