Summary from the Books Poster :
While visiting his crazy Uncle Bart at Crater Lake National Park, thirteen-year-old Ethan's world collapses when all the adults at Crater Lake disappear, including his parents. Now Ethan must rally his new friends and decipher the legends of Crater Lake to find the key to rescuing his parents from their earthen prison before he's captured too and their captivity becomes permanent.
I found Crater Lake a perfect book for tweens, a wonderful adventure for sure. The book starts out with readers getting to meet Ethan and his family which includes his little sister Jordan. This trip is one that Ethan is forced to go on , one he is bored on from the very beginning, even as his Uncle begins to tell about the native aspects of the stories that surround Crater Lake. Little by little you get to meet an array of characters , some scouts, a girl that Ethan gets a crush on , even a Native that might be more than he seems. throughout book you quickly learn that perhaps the stories Uncle Bart tells are not just stories after all. I really enjoyed watching the characters grow , as they struggled to survive and free their parents from the very ground that devoured them. Crater Lake is a wonderful mix of intrigue and adventure. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a book that teaches you about determination , and teamwork.
