Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 4-8 - Eleven-year-old Tom Hammond lives with his widowed mother in a windblown old house chained to the top of a gigantic rock. One night, unable to sleep, he heads down to the stream that borders their property, where he has left a heavy piece of refrigerator packing foam. What starts out as aimless drifting down quiet water turns deadly when Tom's foam slab feeds into the rougher mountain water and he is pulled under a rock, ending up in an underwater cavern. The secrets he discovers while attempting to find his way out of the mountain caves are surprising, yet seamlessly executed. While Leepike Ridgeis primarily an adventure story involving murder, treachery, and betrayal, Wilson's rich imagination and his quirky characters are a true delight. Tom's feisty mother will not believe that her son has drowned despite the evidence to the contrary, and her run-ins with various townspeople are jewels in themselves. There are enough twists and turns in the plot to keep both seasoned and reluctant readers turning the pages. Think Mark Twain with a contemporary and utterly captivating twist.-Kim Dare, Fairfax County Public Schools, VA

Kirkus Reviews
Eleven-year-old Tom Hammond is not happy with his mother's choice of a possible future fiance; Mr. Veatch is not only a teacher, but he's pretty gross. One night, Tom just wants to get away from the house and his mother for awhile, but he ends up stuck in an underground cave with a dead man and an injured dog. Using the dead man's headlamp, Tom looks for a way out and ends up finding history, personal and national. Meanwhile, Elizabeth, his mother, is certain her son is alive. She tries to get help, but the only people willing to "help" are unscrupulous treasure seekers. Tom not only escapes the caves with the dog and a new friend, he also helps to save his mother from Mr. Veatch and the treasure hunters. Wilson's debut is a literate, sometimes humorous page-turner in the classic tradition. Well-read adventure lovers are in for a treat looking for echoes of The Odyssey and Tom Sawyer. While not the best option for reluctant readers, this is still a strong choice for every type of library. (Fiction 10-14)

    Eh. . .?

    I really didn't like this book. It didn't keep me reading, and it has too many details and descriptions for my taste. It's actually a very boring book to me.

    Fun read

    There were a lot of allusions to Tom Sawyer, Robinson Crusoe and the Odyssey, which I liked to find. It was an interesting story line, but my mom liked it better than I did.
