The Lovereading4Kids comment
Gregor and the Marks of Secret by Suzanne Collins - the author of the blockbusting Hunger Games – is the story of a perilous fantasy adventure for young Gregor and his talkative little sister Boots, in their bid to save the Underland. It's only a few months since Gregor and Boots returned from the Underland, leaving their mother behind to heal from the plague. Though Gregor's family receives frequent updates on her condition, they all know Gregor must return to fulfill his role as the warrior who is key to the Underlanders' survival.
This could be the answer for parents with teens and younger siblings. if your teens are mad keen on Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games and you're being badgered by younger siblings to read it too, then give them Suzanne's Gregor series instead. It's a wonderful adventure.
