"Barr brings the intricate, fascinating, and deadly underground world of spelunking into close and intimate focus using Anna's divergent emotions of awe and near terror as she works her way through the total blackness. Readers are immersed in the setting, and Anna's claustrophobia, tangibly intense at times, keeps the tension of the plot tautly controlled." (School Library Journal)
"Barr's gripping prose never loses its hold: we feel Anna's fear acutely, and the tension of the rescue is palpable." (Booklist)

I just love Anna Pidgeon!! She sure can get herself into a mess for a friend. And this time, she does it underground. Although it was a little slow in places & full of spelunking jargon, I just couldn't turn it off! And as usual, the conclusion came out of left field. A good listen, especially with a narrator like Barbara Rosenblat!!

This was my first Anna Pigeon "read" and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The setting for this one--the caverns in Carlsbad--is unique, and you get to learn a bit about rock climbing as well. Good mystery.
