Slake's Limbo

by Felice Holman  |  Grades: 5-8  |  Reading Level 6.4

Desperate, driven, harassed to the breaking point, Slake decides to go underground -- into the sheltering depths of the New York City Subway where he ends up staying for one hundred and twenty-one days. This is the story about survival, and about a 13-year-old misfit's attempts to find footing in a hostile and threatening world.
