"Buck Anderson's life seems to be changing completely. His best friend, David, has moved away; his overprotective parents are hounding him more than ever; he has reluctantly agreed to fill in for his uncle and do odd jobs for a grumpy old veteran in town; and his twin sister has a new boyfriend and is never around anymore. To top it all off, Buck is bullied by a group of boys at school-simply because he stutters. There is one thing that frees Buck from his anxieties. It is the heart-pounding exhilaration he feels when exploring underground caves in and around his hometown. He used to go caving with David, but he is determined to continue on his own now. What he doesn't know is that more changes are headed his way-changes that just might make him rethink his view of the world and his place in it."

display_description Thirteen-year-old Buck Anderson is sad when his best friend moves away and he is bullied for his stuttering. His only joy comes in caving, which he used to do with his friend, but now does alone. He takes a job doing errands for a retired doctor who tells Buck he might be able to cure him of his stuttering. However, before Buck can be cured, he is forced to defend himself against his bully and the retribution puts Buck in danger. Now the only thing that can save him is his knowledge of caving.
