Zilpha Keatley Snyder. Rudy had heard about some of them before, without knowing their scientific names planes or even in tall buildings, but he hadn’t known what it was called scientifically. There were others, however, that he’d never heard of at all, like gatophobia (fear of cats). That struck him as a little bit weird.

Fourteen-year-old Rudy Drummond lives with his mother and half sisters, Margot and Moira- the M and M’s -in Pyramid Hill, California’s legendary gold rush town. But Rudy’s got a secret: He’s terrified of dark, closed-in places.

This book was basically about friendship and making the right choices. I learned that if you make a choice that goes against your conscience, one must suffer the bitter consequences. In this book, two main characters were best friends, and they thought it would be that way forever. But when a new dare-devil boy came along, one of the boys went with his conscience, and the other went against it. The boy who went with his gut feelings, in a way, did the right thing, yet, in this case, he lost his only real friend to the rude boy, who had stomped in and destroyed the two boy's relationship. This book was very well-written, awesomely descriptive, and taught a very important lesson in the midst of a story packed with mystery, suspense, and an interesting, fast-paced plot. Yes, indeed, I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
