Karla’s family moves to a ranch in Arizona. She’s never seen so many rocks lying about here and there. They stop at a rest area called Texas Canyon which looks like an enormous pile of boulders that have been piled high into the sky. It looks as if a tribe of giants must have placed them there. How else did they get so high? But when her family is washing their hands, she turns her back to the boulders to take a picture. Suddenly she hears an enormous roar. She turns around to see boulders cascading down the slope toward her. She races away and saves herself only in the nick of time. But when the dust clears, she looks up through the rubble to the top of the boulders to see a suspicious-looking dude. He is glaring at her as if hates her. Did he start a rockslide somehow? Did he try to murder her? Karla had better figure out what is going on here. Either that or she had better get out of Arizona fast.If you liked Rocks you will enjoy other young adult thrillers by Linda Cargill including Missing, Movie, Boardwalk, Alone, and Stepsisters.
