MY THOUGHTS

 
Once, I got a third of the way through this, I couldn't put it down.  The caving elements are so very compelling.  And Freaky.  Being trapped in a cave with no light in small claustrophobic-like spots...worse-nightmare-ever kind of stuff.

This is my second Kim Liggett book, the first being The Grace Year, which is one of my favs of 2019.  Her writing ensnares you.  She takes these implausible ideas and makes them imaginable, tangible even.  I totally recommend this for a quick, freaky-scary kind of read.
