Hoping to get my son more interested in reading. I started hated reading too when i was 12. I missed out! Check it out!
From School Library Journal Grade 5-8–No good deed goes unpunished in the fourth installment in the popular series. Gregor and his sister Boots are regular visitors to Underland, where their mother is slowly recovering from injuries incurred in the previous episode. Gregor is supposed to be studying echolocation with his rat friend, Ripred the Gnawer, but hes doing very badly. Ripred has his own problems, largest of which is Bane, the once-sweet little baby Gnawer whom the protagonist refused to kill in Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane (Scholastic, 2004). Bane, now a half-grown monster of a rat, is surprisingly charismatic yet emotionally stunted and easily controlled by the forces of evil. When Queen Luxa gets a message that the mice that saved her life in the jungle are in trouble, she and Gregor head out to investigate, accompanied by her cousin Howard, several bats, Gregors sisters, and a brave cockroach named Temp. The breathless pace, intense drama, and extraordinary challenges will leave fans clamoring for the conclusion of this fine series.–Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Library Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

Gregor And The Marks Of Secret (Underland Chronicles, Book 4) Paperback – May 1, 2007 by Suzanne Collins (Author) Review
I loved this book just like I loved the 3 before it. I feel a bit bad for boots as she keeps getting into these situations. All in all I never would have dreamed I would enjoy a book about underground creatures like spiders and cockroaches, but this whole series has intrigued me and I just can’t put it down. -Read Reviews-
Gregor returns to the Underland to visit his mother and for lessons with Ripred. When a nibbler sends Luxas crown (a coded message that they need help), Gregor, Luxa, Boots, Hazard, and Howard along with four bats and Temp head out on a picnic (really, to investigate what is going on with the nibblers). They discover the gnawers are now being led by the Bane and attempting to eliminate the nibblers. This fourth book of the Gregor the Overlander series is dedicated to setting up the final book. The feel of the entire thing is a bit darker than the previous books. The pattern established in books one through three is completely broken in this one. The end is quite depressing and makes you want to move right on to book five.
