#316 Gregor and the Code of the Claw by Suzanne Collins
An impressive end to the five-volume series. Definitely some surprises as far as who survives and who doesn't. This final volume includes the big war we've been leading up to between the humans and the rats. We get to see a couple characters we thought were long gone, and Gregor's sister Lizzie finally makes it down into the Underland.
I'm a little disappointed with the ending, I have to admit. As Gregor realizes, he can't stay in the Underland, but he won't fit in the Overland anymore. I feel like the author didn't realize the dilemma this created until she was wrapping up this final book, and her solution to the problem really doesn't sit well with me.
Other than that, though, I've really enjoyed this series. Not on a Harry Potter level, where I'm desperately wishing the story would continue, but it was definitely enjoyable while it lasted.
