The 120th anniversary of the disappearance of seven children and their Headmaster in a local cave known as The Headmaster͛s Cave is approaching. The knowledge that one of George͛s ancestors disappeared with the other children has haunted him and his family for generations. When George and Dougie receive an unexpected email stating that the mystery has finally been solved, Dougie and Katie try to persuade George to journey with them. But not even the enticement of uncovering the mystery can tempt George to follow the word of a stranger to the dangerous and ͚haunted͛ cave. Only when Dougie goes missing, will George and his friend Katie, accompanied with his dog, Flanagan, journey to rescue his friend. On their way, they must not only battle their fears, but must also overcome nature͛s obstacles, Old Maggie and her dog pack, and the local bullies. But that͛s nothing compared to the terror that awaits them in The Headmaster͛s Cave, when the mystery is finally revealed.
My Review: Fun characters that readers can connect with. Great adventure that hooks readers. Lots of danger that keeps the readers turning the pages. I enjoyed going on this adventure with George, Katie, and Dougie. As George and Katie search for Dougie, they run into many dangers like a pack of dogs and bullies. Once they are taken to the cave by an evil man, the kids face many more dangers. Did George really see the White Lady? The children learn the truth about the past and solve the mystery of the cave. I received this book free for a honest review.
