The morning after Hurricane Leo rips through the town of Canaan, residents awaken to widespread destruction -- power outages, downed branches, uprooted trees, broken windows and damaged roofs. Four eighth-grade friends -- Evan, Jason, Mitchell, and CJ -- meet to explore the devastation. The tight-knit group is dismayed to find that Evan has brought along a stray -- Ricky, who is new to their town and school, and doesn't have any friends yet. Ricky is the one to find the strange trap door that's appeared in the middle of the woods -- the door to an old bomb shelter, unearthed by the hurricane. Inside, the boys find a completely intact underground lair, complete with electricity, food, and entertainment (in the form of videocassettes). The boys vow to keep the place's existence to themselves. Things soon get tense. Some bad locals keep snooping around. And what started out as a fun place to escape soon becomes a serious refuge for one of the kids who is trying to avoid an abusive home situation. In order to save the shelter, the friends must keep its secret... and in order to save themselves, they're going to have to share their individual secrets, and build the safest place they can.

Gecko doesn't want to go back to juvenile detention . . . and he'll do whatever it takes to make sure of that! Graham "Gecko" Fosse wasn't actually doing the robbery . . . he didn't even know it was going down. He was just the driver of the getaway car. But that doesn't keep him out of juvenile detention - the worst place he's ever been. So when do-gooder Douglas Healy shows up with a plan to put Gecko in a halfway house with two other young offenders, he jumps at the chance, even if it does mean he has to share a New York City apartment with Healy, 15-year-old killer Arjay Moran, and Terence Florian, who is always checking out the angles. The three of them have to stay in school, out of trouble and on the good side of hard-assed caseworker Ms. Vaughn, or it's back to the slammer for them all. Which is easier said than done, since Terence seems bent on getting himself in trouble at any opportunity. . . If Gecko is out of jail, why does his life just seem to be getting worse? Bestselling author Gordon Korman uses his usual humor in The Juvie Three, but adds a suspenseful edge that will keep readers rooting for the boys right through to the end!!
