Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"The new slide appears with no warning. The old orange slide on the playground at Osshua Elementary is gone--replaced with a hulking monstrosity of a slide, black and sleek. Everyone agrees that it's a little ominous. So why do students seem pulled against their will to slide down it? Griffin Birch isn't known for being brave, but there's something about that slide that's made him curious. And when his best friend Laila is caught up in its strange pull, he has no choice but to follow her down and see what happens. And sure enough, the Black Slide proves to be no ordinary piece of playground equipment. What Griffin and Laila find at the other end of this strange portal is a cruel world, populated by creatures that call themselves the Merciless. The Merciless, in their quest to become immortal, have a plan to steal the energy of human children all around the world. And it's up to Griffin to save himself, his best friend--and the future of earth itself."-- book jacket
