LoveReading View on Gregor and the Marks of Secret

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.

This is Book Four in the Underland Chronicles series. The others are:

Gregor the Overlander: Book One 

Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane: Book Two

Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods: Book Three

Gregor and the Code of Claw: Book Five (to be published in the UK August 2012)
