One by one, we raised our flashlight beams to the underside of the roof. It was dark. But even in the dim light, we could see that the darkness was moving. It undulated like "the wave" at a hockey game. The cockroaches protested our entry by releasing their hold on the ceiling and flying down at us.

"I'm outta here," Caleb said, heading for the doorway.

"Not so fast," I said, my fingers closing tightly on his collar. "Pull your hood up, Caleb, and get on that ladder. I'll go last."

I hoped that last sentence didn't sound too bitter. I also hoped that all the weights I'd been pumping would help me haul my nonworking leg up. I gripped the ladder beneath my three buddies and hung my cane on one of the lower rungs.

My breathing was heavy, my hands were swewaty. But with one pull after another, I kept climbing.

Format: Paperback
Kip and his buddies, Fraser, Vlad, and Caleb, have created the Daredevil Club. Dangerous stunts are their specialty. They have already completed three of the seven stunts Kip has planned for the group. There was a slight delay after stunt number three because Kip was seriously injured in a fall and has been a patient at the local physiotherapy clinic to regain the use of his shattered left leg.

The four club members are embarking on their fourth stunt -- climbing the abandoned old water tower in their small town. Choosing to complete the stunt on a rainy night makes it even more dangerous, yet rewarding, for the group. Despite rain, poisonous pigeon droppings, and swarms of cockroaches, the stunt is successful. Now, on to number five.

Since forming the Daredevil Club, another group of boys called the Wildmen have started doing their own stunts in a effort to beat Kip's group's goal of seven increasingly difficult stunts. Both groups are planning to crawl across the iron girders of the local bridge for the final challenge. But is it more dangerous than they anticipate?

DAREDEVIL CLUB by Pam Withers features not only dangerous stunts, but also Kip and his pals' efforts to hold a fundraiser to save the small town therapy clinic that has helped Kip recover from his injury. Reluctant readers will be motivated by the fast-paced action scenes of this high-interest, lower reading level book presented by Orca Book

Publishers.
