"Buck Anderson's life seems to be changing completely. His best friend, David, has moved away; his overprotective parents are hounding him more than ever; he has reluctantly agreed to fill in for his uncle and do odd jobs for a grumpy old veteran in town; and his twin sister has a new boyfriend and is never around anymore. To top it all off, Buck is bullied by a group of boys at school:simply because he stutters. There is one thing that frees Buck from his anxieties. It is the heart-pounding exhilaration he feels when exploring underground caves in and around his hometown. He used to go caving with David, but he is determined to continue on his own now. What he doesn't know is that more changes are headed his way:changes that just might make him rethink his view of the world and his place in it."

one of the most boring books i've ever read

I see why this wasn't higher rated. The beginning starts off very exciting with him exploring a cave. however it sets it up so very clearly and so very obviously that he's going to come back to the cave and get trapped. Breaking all the rules that he already knows which is: you do not go climbing alone and you never lose sight of the entrance. It's so freaking obvious that he's going to get trapped in there, that kills any sympathy you would ordinarily feel for this character. Because he's doing something, on purpose, that he knows is stupid and dumb and dangerous and life-threatening. Then there's a lot of information that I call filler, taking up space until the next interesting thing happens. Seems like according to others the plot continues to be slow. Page 20 dnf
