Join the Black Hole Gang on a batty science adventure! Matt Miller is just an ordinary kid... ordinary, that is, except that his parents are both brilliant university professors, his mom skateboards to work and he's a member of The Black Hole Gang. Who are they? They're kids who love in-line skating, chess, cracking jokes, chatting with other kids on the 'net... and hanging out in an awesome clubhouse packed with beakers, terraniums, plant and insect specimens, rock collections, and a telescope named Boris! An urgent e-mail alerts the Gang-Matt, Rosa, A. J., and Wei Ling (and Newton, Matt's distinctly above-average mutt)-about a vandalized bat cave in Missouri that needs cleaning up and protection. Soon, the Gang's on their way to a deep, dark caving adventure, packed with cool cave creatures, spectacular stalagmites... even a "cave ghost." With so much fun and mystery underground, you'd be "bats" not to come along!
