Gregor the overlander by Suzanne Collins is one of the best books I've read in awhile Protagonist: Gregor and boots antagonist: spiders . It starts with Gregor at the “tween” ages, and his 4 year old sister “Boots” playing in the laundry room when they for some strange reason fall through a grate in the corner and end up in this new world with rodents and insects as big as tall humans. Knowing Gregor, he wasn't confused, or even scared for that matter. As curious as curious could be, he searches this new world. And sure enough, it's inhabited with tall oversized humans. Soon after the meetup with these so called “humans.”
Their placed on the backs of huge hairy cockroaches and sent to the “Regalia” . Gregor and boots later shake hand with the royal family of this underground city and are handed the prophecy . One conflict is when they unwillingly have to fight off spiders to fulfill the prophecy. The second conflict is when they find out their fate. The turning point I can't mention because it would give away the plot
It states that the two overlanders and eight underlanders will venture to find the lost overlander with Luxa- the soon to be queen of the underworld. Will Luxa ripred the rat, a couple of spiders and all while riding bats, find the lost overlander Read Gregor the overlander to find out. I recommend this book because it keeps you on the edge of your seat.
