Description - The Long Weekend by Savita Kalhan
Sam and Lloyd are great friends even if they have only met very recently - and when they are picked up from school by a stranger it is some time before they realise that the driver is not known to either of them. When they arrive at his house, he seems friendly but Sam's worries are not completely stilled. Realising that he is stuck staying for the night, he decides to push a chest of drawers in front of the door to his room. The man, when he comes, is prepared to knock the door down. Sam slithers through the bathroom window, and then follows a harrowing escape story, in which Sam and Lloyd finally have to dig their way out... A compelling action-adventure for older readers, a nightmare for adults- nothing is explicitly described, although it is clear to any newspaper reader or aware citizen what the precise danger really is.
