Reef of Death

Paul Zindel. Hyperion Books, $5.99 (192pp) ISBN 978-0-7868-1309-4

Set on Australia's Great Barrier Reef, this ""thrill-a-chapter adventure... offers a maximum of gore and gimmicks,"" said PW. ""On a literary-merit scale, this deep-sea escapade falls several leagues below the author's best work, but rises above many other books in the genre."" Ages 10-14. (June)
