For as long as he can remember, people have warned fourteen-year-old Rudy and other kids in the neighborhood not to play in Pyramid Hill's abandoned gold mines. Even Rudy's best friend, Barney, a true daredevil, won't go near those cavernous death traps. That is, until Tyler Lewis moves in from L.A. Ty's determined to go in, and he's got a map.
Rudy just can't admit how scared he is of closed, dark places. But even volunteering to baby-sit his younger sisters to get himself out of Ty's plans isn't enough to stop the others from pressuring Rudy to crawl into the dark, gurgling, slimy mines...where it's so easy to get trapped.
