A middle grade novel for ages 8-12 from the author of The Principal's Son and Middle School Millionaires.
When Travis Macgregor headed down to the river that day, he didn’t pay any attention to the weather. His mind was on fishing; he did not notice the approaching storm clouds. Suddenly, the sky unleashed heavy winds and rain; he was ill prepared. Luck is on his side though. In the ravine, behind the secluded cove he had been fishing, Travis finds a cave—a dry place to wait for the storm to pass. Inside the cave is a pool of water. Crystal clear water. Travis doesn’t give the water a second thought; he never would have guessed that his life would soon be turned upside down because of the water…

Hard to put down.Interesting and serious book.Lovely meaning and just the most perfect book you can ever in you life read!
I bought and chose to read this book with my younger brother, in an attempt to encourage him to read with something that he could relate to and engage with (he's always complaining about the books at school that they give him) and I must say that I am blown away by the response I got.
To have my brother enjoy a book for once is really saying something, he can be quite unfairly critical and picky most of the time so the fact that he enjoyed this really says a lot about it's quality. I admit, even I enjoyed reading it and maybe even just as much as him; it's great to finally see a book that younger kids can enjoy and it goes to show that Roderick J. Robison really understands what differentiates between a bad and good kids book. 5 stars all the way!
I enjoyed the book but it wasn't one of the best books I've read. I liked the concept of the book and I like the author but I wouldn't really recommend this book for 10-12 year olds. But I think this book would be a good book for 7-9 year olds.
