Devil's Pass (Seven Series)by Sigmund Brouwer
Seventeen-year-old Webb's abusive stepfather has made it impossible for him to live at home, so Webb survives on the streets of Toronto by busking with his guitar and working as a dishwasher. When Webb's grandfather dies, his will stipulates that his grandsons fulfill specific requests. Webb's task takes him to the Canol Trail in Canada's Far North, where he finds out that there are much scarier things than the cold and the occasional grizzly bear. With a Native guide, two German tourists and his guitar for company, Webb is forced to confront terrible events in his grandfather's past and somehow deal with the pain and confusion of his own life.
Webb's adventures start in Barracuda, part of The Seven Prequels and continue in Tin Soldier, part of The Seven Sequels.

One of the kids ran away and got lost in the forest and did not go home and he was never found.
AWESOME BOOK I thought the book was going to be a scary book and sort of a mystery book when I first took a look at it and I like those types of books so I got that one. My expectations of the book were right the book was amazing i love it.I liked how the book was scary with Webb and Elliot and all of that stuff. I also like how the setting was in Devil;s Pass. I liked the book a lot because I like these types of books I am definetly going to read the rest of the series. Another reason I like it is because it want cheesy like other scary books. I like the book so much it is awesome people around the age of 10 and 50 should definitely read it the others should to. I would definitely rate this book a 5 star it is amazing. All I can say about this book is AWESOME.
Since his mother's remarriage to Elliott Skinner, Webb's life had been full of horrific abuse by the man. Now 17, he lives on the streets of Toronto, working odd jobs and playing his guitar to make money. Webb, like his six cousins, is given a task by his now-deceased grandfather; he is to fly from Toronto to the Northwest Territories and do something about a long-buried secret on Devil's Pass. That "something" is not quite clear. While enroute to the Pass, Webb encounters an abused woman and her psychotic boyfriend, reminding him of the unpleasantness he endured in his own home. As Webb struggles with emotions and learns about events in his grandfather's past, a saying by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzschecomes to mind, as it was something his grandfather told him years before: "That which does not kill us makes us stronger." Time and again that saying plays into the storyline. Lots of action and adventure, with Webb's courage and persistence coming through. Well done.
