Goodreads Summary: What waits Beneath?
Pat O’Toole has always idolized his older brother, Coop. He’s even helped Coop with some of his crazier plans — such as risking his life to help his big brother dig a tunnel underneath their neighborhood in the suburbs of Washington, DC. Coop is . . . different. He doesn’t talk on the phone, doesn’t use email, and doesn’t have friends. He’s never really cared for anything but the thrill of being underground and Pat. So it’s no surprise to anyone — even Pat — that after a huge fight with their parents, Coop runs away. Exactly one year later, Pat receives a package containing a digital voice recorder and a cryptic message from his brother. He follows the clues to New York City, and soon discovers that Coop has joined the Community, a self-sufficient society living beneath the streets. Now it’s up to Pat to find his brother — and bring him home.
Review: I really enjoyed this book and it wasn’t what I was expecting. I loved how the recordings were weaved into the story. this book read so fast. In the beginning of the story I wasn’t sure if I would like it or not ,but once pat got to NY things started to pick up. I loved how everything tied together at the end. I can’t wait until the sequel. I looked on goodreads and it doesn’t say its a series so i don’t know if there is going to be a sequel. The one thing that i wasn’t a fan of in this book was the ending. It was so abrupt and a lot of things were left unanswered. Overall I enjoyed this.
~Hope you enjoyed this and i’ll have another post up soon. Take Care!
