Summary

Who is the mysterious bloodstained man who stops their coach? 

Welcome to Crater Lake, the year six school trip where your first day might just be your last.... 

Maybe it’s the bloodstained man who tries to stop the coach. Maybe it’s the absence of welcoming staff, but something is definitely not right at Crater Lake Activity Centre. 

Then, at night, things get much, much stranger...Lance and his friends, Chets, Katja, Big Mak and Adrianne find themselves in a fight for survival and must work together to defeat a swarm of enemies. 

But whatever happens they must never, ever, fall asleep!

Laugh Out Loud Funny

Bought Crater Lake for my 11 year old son who HATES reading. One week on, I have finished it and my son is half way through and loving it (Ok, I was secretly listening during homeschool!) I enjoyed every minute of Lance and his friends' gruesome but hilarious adventure at Crater Lake. The story has plenty of fun and tension, even for kids like mine, who don't enjoy reading, but it also a nice (but not too in-your-face) message for non-Alpha, quirky kids. A fabulous and original adventure with very strong characters and belly laughs. What's not to love?
Laurence Boxhall makes a wonderful job of reading Crater Lake and giving life to the characters. I found his reading a teeeny bit slow, but at x1.2 speed it was perfect.
