The last thing Dana Redding wants to do this summer is go on vacation. It’s bad enough her mom wants to get remarried, but now Dana has to spend two weeks visiting this guy’s kids. While exploring the local countryside, Dana, Jack, and Amy stumble upon the secret entrance to an old abandoned mine. Racing against time, bad weather, and armed thieves, the three kids must struggle together to get out of the mine alive.
"Refreshing to have girls do the fighting . . . their survival depends not just on smarts and spunk, but also on cooperation. . . . The fast pace, too, will keep [readers] eagerly turning the pages." - Kirkus Reviews
(Special Note: Book one has a new titile! Previous title: Troll Creek. And, for all you beta readers and trivia nuts, the original working title was The Adventurers in The Mine Caper.)
Even though Dana, Amy, and Jack have escaped the Troll, they know they are still in danger. Something sinister is going on in the old mine and the kids are determined to find out what it is. Dana is sure she’s identified the Troll, but Amy and Jack can't believe he’s someone they’ve trusted all their lives. The deeper Dana digs for answers the more questions she finds.
Desperate, Dana tries to find a solution on her own--but who will believe her?
