In the second book of The Underground Book Readers, Leena, Kahn, Casey, Jairus, Asher, and Conroy face unpredicted challenges. The World Force tightens its grip on the remaining teens and children of the Blue Ridge Mountains area. Increased patrols and drones are seen nearly every day as they visit their underground cavern to read forbidden books and study the Bible. The Underground Book Readers attempt to find out the identity and purpose of a new threatening group seen on a nearby mountain while they continue to work on an escape tunnel. But they soon discover there is more under Leena’s house than a cellar. The underground group design a spy mission to the other mountain. Questions remain about possible escapees who left to find a free territory in what used to be called the United States in the world before.
Leena turned to Conroy. “What do you mean?”
“They have been moving all around over there seemingly without any specific destination. They could be looking for a house to occupy. I was doing the same thing after the World Force took my brother. That’s why I hid in your shed, Leena.”
“I see what you mean. There are several of them and we would be outnumbered. They could overtake us without any problem. And we are just getting our headquarters established here at my house.”
Kahn had another theory. “Just a second. When I looked at them tonight, they were scattering out and then going back into a tight group. Then they repeated it.”
“What does that mean?” Leena asked.
“Perhaps they are scouting or doing some sort of training, or a drill,” Asher suggested.
“A drill? For what?” Kahn asked.
Asher shrugged his shoulders. “I don’t know. Maybe they are going to fight someone. Or they are afraid someone will come to attack, and they will need to defend their group.”
“Just as long as they don’t come to our headquarters,” Leena said.
Once again, the room was quiet.
