Longing to be one of the popular girls in her new town, Kammie Summers has fallen into a well during a (fake) initiation into their club. Now Kammie's trapped in the dark, counting the hours, waiting to be rescued. (The Girls have gone for help, haven't they?) As hours pass, Kammie's real-life predicament mixes with memories of the best and worst moments of her life so far, including the awful reasons her family moved to this new town in the first place. And as she begins to feel hungry and thirsty and light-headed, Kammie starts to imagine she has company, including a French-speaking coyote and goats that just might be zombies. Karen Rivers has created a unique narrator with an authentic, sympathetic, sharp, funny voice who will have readers laughing and crying and laugh-crying over the course of physically and emotionally suspenseful, utterly believable events.

Stream of consciousness writing doesn't always work well, but in this book, it creates a beautifully deep, emotional story. Kammie's life, dreams, hopes, and regrets slowly unfold in a a way many people can relate to - amidst her very real issue of being trapped in a well.

What if your friends tricked you and you fell into a well? What would you do?

This absorbing adventure takes us on an emotional journey with a girl who has fallen into a well. Love the small book format, and 200 pages is just right for an inner dialogue - short enough to enjoy, without needing to rush through to find out how it ends. Grades 4-7
