UnderWorld by Catherine MacPhail

Hi Readers!
Underworld by Catherine MacPhail is a creepy book for ages 11-14. Though slated in the reviews side of things I think that this book is a relatively good read, although sometimes the story-line was a bit forced. I spent the day reading this on a mountain top cafe after injuring myself skiing, and thought this book was fairly entertaining with a good plot. It was fairly easy to read so those of you who prefer a harder writing style may not favour this book, but if you are looking for a quick book to read, then Underworld is for you!                                                                 
Basically it's about 5 school kids from diverse backgrounds who all go on a school together to a Scottish island. They are taken into caves that are surrounded by legends and upon being blocked in, they have to try and find a way out.

Here is the blurb:
A school trip goes disastrously wrong when five troubled high school students find themselves trapped in an underground cave. Their best chance of escape is to stay together. But when a member of the group disappears, their hope of finding a way out starts to fade. Does one of the remaining four know more than he or she is letting on, or is there something evil lurking in the caves?

It is a good book although hard to really get into at the start, I love all of Cathy's books so I'm kinda biased.
A really easy read! Enjoyable but forgettable :(
