This month, we are reading Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins, an irresistible story of a boy who embarks on a dangerous quest in order to fulfill his destiny in a strange world beneath New York City.

ABOUT THE BOOK

When Gregor falls through a grate in the laundry room of his apartment building, he hurtles into the dark Underland, where spiders, rats, cockroaches coexist uneasily with humans. This world is on the brink of war, and Gregor's arrival is no accident. A prophecy foretells that Gregor has a role to play in the Underland's uncertain future. Gregor wants no part of it -- until he realizes it's the only way to solve the mystery of his father's disappearance. Reluctantly, Gregor embarks on a dangerous adventure that will change both him and the Underland forever.
