Watch out for Sparrow Rock!
Pete, Jimmie, Dan. Tessa, Big Sue and Jay are good friends. They all take off in Jimmie’s car for Sparrow Island. They arrive at Big Sue’s Grandpa’s cabin. Suddenly out of no where the building shakes. In the sky are bright lights. The gang thinks it is a nuclear blast. They seal themselves down in the basement.
Days go by. Then when the gang thinks it might be safe, they hear a starching noise. There is a tunnel and inside the tunnel are rats. One of the rats attacks Jimmie.
Jay was scratched during his and Pete’s fight in the tunnel. He is showing the same symptoms as Jimmie.
Sparrow Rock by Nate Kenyon is a must read! Just when you thought you had it all figured out, Mr. Kenyon throws you a curve ball. The characters really worked well together. I like that both the males and females played equal parts in this book.
There were flash backs to Pete’s life. The first time this happened it through a bit and took me a moment to realize what happened. Though after that it was a smooth progression.
This book should be made into a movie. Sparrow Rock will give you chills …long after you have finished it!
