When you move somewhere new, you get to be someone new. I was ready. Sixth-grader Kammie Summers's plan to be one of the popular girls at school hasn't gone the way she hoped. She's fallen into a well during a (fake) initiation into the Girls' club. Now she's trapped in the dark, counting the hours, hoping to be rescued. (The Girls have gone for help, haven't they?) As the hours go by, Kammie's real-life trouble mixes with memories of the best and worst moments of her life so far, including the awful reasons her family moved to this new town in the first place. And as she begins to feel hungry and thirsty and dizzy, Kammie discovers she does have visitors, including a French-speaking coyote and goats that just might be zombies. But they can't get her out of the well. (Those Girls are coming back, aren't they?) "Moving, suspenseful, and impossible to put down." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review "Darkly humorous . . . Honest and forthcoming." —The New York Times Book Review "I dare you to pick up this riveting novel without reading straight through to its heart-stopping conclusion." —Katherine Applegate, Newbery Medal–winning author of The One and Only Ivan

What if your friends tricked you and you fell into a well? What would you do?

This absorbing adventure takes us on an emotional journey with a girl who has fallen into a well. Love the small book format, and 200 pages is just right for an inner dialogue - short enough to enjoy, without needing to rush through to find out how it ends. Grades 4-7
