Gregor the Overlander is a wonderful teen fiction book that was written by Suzanne Collins. It is mainly set in an underground world called (as you would guess) the Underland. When a twelve year old boy named Gregor falls down from New York City with his ever enthusiastic baby sister, Boots, he finds that there is more to his life than he could ever imagine. He is the prophesized “Warrior” who will bring the dark underworld into safety. This book is chock full of fun surprises, daring adventures and hilarious comic relief. If you’re looking for a good book to read then this is the one. It is followed by four other books in the series, Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane, Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods, Gregor and the Marks of Secret, and Gregor and the Code of Claw. All of these books are great books to read aloud, and are fairly easy to read in general. So next time you’re in the library grab Gregor the Overlander off the shelf and you won’t be sorry!
