Booklist Reviews 2018 February #2

A field trip to Carlsbad Caverns takes a turn for the worse when an earthquake plunges Mr. Baker's eighth-grade class into an icy underground river. Eric manages to crawl ashore quickly, but he's separated from the group. Silvia finds herself uncomfortably in the lead of the rest of the class, and she urges them on to find Eric, who's using the tips he learned from his favorite survival books to struggle through the caverns alone. Unbeknownst to the class, however, they've tumbled into a section of the caverns occupied by a community of people who took refuge in the caves generations ago and are so wary of surface dwellers, they'll kill the intruders on sight. King's at his best when describing the kids' survival efforts and the unusual fictional flora and fauna they discover while they're stranded. The plotline about the underground community is less successful, particularly the explanation of the origin of the kingdom, which is fairly clumsy. Still, readers who love survival thrillers might appreciate the kids' high-stakes adventure in a fascinating location. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
