Unsure about the book? … Read this excerpt of a review from Amazon (verified purchase):
“True story, and probably the best testimonial ever. I purchased this book for one of my sons, and I could not believe what I was saw. I went in to check on him a few nights ago so that I could tell him to get ready for bed because he had school the next morning. His video game was on, but paused, and his nose was stuck inside of my Kindle. He was reading D. S. Allen’s Headmaster’s Cave. ‘Mom, I just want to see what happens next. George is about to go with Dougie and Katie!'”

About the Book
Title: The Headmaster’s Cave (The Adventures of George and Flanagan, Book #1) | Author: D.S. Allen | Publication Date: October 3, 2014 | Publisher: Independent | Number of pages: 172 | Recommended age: 8 to 12
No one goes into The Headmaster’s Cave.
George Stewart is no hero, but when his friend disappears, he must confront his fears to rescue Dougie and to finally uncover the mystery of The Headmaster’s Cave.
The 120th anniversary of the disappearance of seven children and their Headmaster in a local cave known as The Headmaster’s Cave is approaching. The knowledge that one of George’s ancestors disappeared with the other children has haunted him and his family for generations. When George and Dougie receive an unexpected email stating that the mystery has finally been solved, Dougie and Katie try to persuade George to journey with them. But not even the enticement of uncovering the mystery can tempt George to follow the word of a stranger to the dangerous and ‘haunted’ cave. Only when Dougie goes missing, will George and his friend Katie, accompanied with his dog, Flanagan, journey to rescue his friend.
On their way, they must not only battle their fears, but must also overcome nature’s obstacles, Old Maggie and her dog pack, and the local bullies. But that’s nothing compared to the terror that awaits them in The Headmaster’s Cave, when the mystery is finally revealed.

The Buzz About the Book
“The Headmaster’s Cave is a fun and exciting read by an author who’s obviously not forgotten what it’s like to be young. The Headmaster’s Cave is most highly recommended.” ~ Readers’ Favorite, 5 Stars
“…In the end the truth about The Headmaster’s Cave and the events surrounding it will come as a surprise – but not until chapters of thrilling adventures, self-examination, and challenging encounters spice a read designed to draw in even the more reluctant reader, providing a vivid story that explains some events but leaves the door open for further adventures.” ~ D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
“Kept me on my toes and found myself not wanting to put it down, even fell asleep reading just to find a good stopping point. Great read and would defiantly recommend to those young readers interested in adventures and mysteries.” ~ Marcus W., Amazon
