The Lovereading4Kids comment
An adventure story in which surprising things happen set deep in an underground world. Unhappy while staying with his mean relatives, Eddie finds himself led into the secret and unexplored parts of Wookey Hole.

Ali’s previous novels are also very atmospheric of time and place. Click here to view them
Dark Summer by Ali Sparkes
It's the summer holidays, and Eddie finds himself strangely drawn to the famous caves at Wookey Hole. He makes friends with the ticket seller there, and before long is allowed to roam wherever he wants. He loves it ...until the day he gets lost. Just as panic sets in, his hand is taken by a strange girl, about his own age, who guides him to the surface. Gwerren is weird. She's extraordinarily pale with huge violet eyes and white hair - what's more, she won't come out of the caves. As she and Eddie become friends he starts to wonder if she's a ghost. Then Eddie nearly dies in a pothole - and discovers not only the truth, but life where nobody thought it could be ...
