Booklist Reviews 2018 February #1

Carousel is a sad, impoverished little town. Having just moved there, 12-year-old Gran (short for Granite) meets an acerbic girl, Catalina, who speaks to him only once. But that's enough for him to become obsessed with her. Following her one day, he discovers a warren of tunnels under the town, where Catalina's job is to prop up the surface buildings with poles and other weight-bearing objects. A "lifter," she reluctantly allows Gran to help her with the work, but they soon find themselves in terrible danger from an evil force called the Hollows, which is creating huge sinkholes everywhere in town. Will the kids be able to foil the force before the entire town is destroyed? After a somewhat slow start, Eggers' story moves along briskly, thanks to mounting suspense and bite-size chapters. Gran and Catalina are engaging characters, though one wonders how two kids could manage to execute the Herculean tasks they do. The premise is original, though, and always intriguing. Some reservations aside, the book is sure to attract a sizable audience of Eggers fans. Grades 5-7. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
