The Lovereading4Kids comment

A great story for teenagers where the reader urgently turns the pages. Set in a fictional context with all the necessary street cred. This is the author’s second novel; we enjoyed the first one called The Wrong Hands but this one is even more accomplished and quite different from much that’s on the market.

Synopsis

The Rope Ladder by Nigel Richardson

Mungo's world falls apart when his dad falls ill and dies. His life is further disrupted by his mother's decision to leave the family home in London and move to the countryside. During a hurricane Mungo finds himself seeking solace at the bottom of a disused well, but when the rope ladder disappears, Mungo knows his life is hanging in the balance.
