Publisher's Description

Something is wrong with Cooper. He’s plagued by a fear he doesn’t understand and can’t control. Cooper just wants to escape, and a summer vacation aboard the restored cabin cruiser, The Getaway, with best friends Gordy, Hiro, and Lunk seems like the perfect way to do it. Two weeks of fun—with no mysteries or life-and-death danger. That’s the plan.

But their plans are shattered the very first night when they witness a murder. Or did they? Despite their intentions of leaving the investigation to the police, narrow misses and creepy encounters lure them in. Is there really a body floating in the underwater currents of the lake? The closer they get to the truth, the deeper into danger they get. Too late they see the trap. Now each of them must face their own buried fears . . . just below the surface.

    This review was written for Below the Surface.
    Cooper gets his long-awaited summer vacation on beautiful Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Therell be sleep outs on The Getaway, the MacKinnons restored cabin cruiser, snorkeling, scuba, swimming, lots of eating and pranking with his three friends, Gordy, Hiro, and Lunkjust the kind of entertainment they need before entering ninth grade. A couple of months previously, imprisonment in a flooded basement and a near drowning have wounded Cooper's psyche, Gordy's too. And they don't even know it. Cooper's just not ready for another run in with deadly criminals. When Hiro, the cop wannabe with her womans intuition, sniffs out foul play on a girl-gone-missing, Cooper and the other guys remained in denial. But burying your fear doesn't mean that its dead. Lethal danger is bearing down on Cooper and his friends. Will they realize it in time?

    Below the surface explores post-traumatic stress and is an excellent sequel to the terrors Cooper experienced in Back Before Dark. The author, Tim Shoemaker, did an excellent job juggling five points of view thus giving readers insight into each of the four friends, their personal struggles and relationships to one another. He also progressively raises the tension and mystery while pushing the plot forward to the dramatic conclusion. At the end of the book, the author also includes an excellent discussion of fear and how to handle it, as well as stimulating discussion questions.

    Having read the first two, the third one continued the theme that I zeroed in on, where a gang of three Christian teens reach out to the bully in the community, and love him into the kingdom. In a society where it is easy to be the bully on the internet, it was good to see a book that encourages teens to see beyond their prejudices and welcome the outsider into their group.

    Captivating Fictional story for kids

    I bought this book for my son who is 10 years old. He told me that it is one of his favorites. What he liked most was how the book talked about good fears and bad fears. He loved the action and was really captivated by the story/plot. Cooper and Hiro are characters who have hidden fears and have to learn how to deal with them. This wasn't the first book of the series, but he started here and now wants to read the other two. It is great to see him reading thirty minutes or more each day without asking him to.

    Tim Shoemaker in his new book, Below The Surface Book Three in the Code of Silence Series published by Zondervan gives us Fear can be buriedbut that doesnt mean its dead.

    From the back cover: He believed hed beaten his fear. Killed it months ago. But hed only buried it. Fear has a way of resurrecting itself, and right now it was crawling up his throat.

    Something is wrong with Cooper. Hes plagued by a fear he doesnt understand and cant control. Cooper just wants to escape, and a summer vacation aboard the restored cabin cruiser, The Getaway, with best friends Gordy, Hiro, and Lunk seems like the perfect way to do it. Two weeks of funwith no mysteries or life-and-death danger. Thats the plan.

    But their plans are shattered the very first night when they witness a murder. Or did they? Despite their intentions of leaving the investigation to the police, narrow misses and creepy encounters lure them in. Is there really a body floating in the underwater currents of the lake? The closer they get to the truth, the deeper into danger they get. Too late they see the trap. Now each of them must face their own buried fears . . . just below the surface.

    Fear is not dealt with has the potential to kill and certainly destroy. This is the main theme that is running through Below The Surface. There is fear of the water and fear of being alone to name just a few that are explored in this story. Cooper and the gang may have witnessed a murder and a girl is possibly missing. Now they have to determine is what they saw correct and what about the girl? This is a story about friendship and what it means to have our friends. It also deals slightly with the impact of male leadership from an adult. In addition to everything it is also a page-turning, you wont be able to figure it out mystery thriller. This book is supposed to be written for young adults but I have news for you this book should also be read by the adults as well. This is good stuff. Cooper, Hiro, Gordy and Lunk are wonderful characters that are bright, resourceful and full of faith. Below The Surface is a book that will keep you up late into the night flipping pages as fast as you can read. I recommend this book with enthusiasm.

    This is the story of four teenagers, one girl and three boys. They are all good friends who, along with their families, are taking a lake vacation together right before starting their first year of high school.

    The action starts right at the beginning, and a mystery develops involving a missing girl who might have died-or she might not be missing at all. There is a mix-up over the girl's identity. The teenagers in this story are immediately thrown into the middle of the confusion and possible danger. Much of the story has the lone female teenager, Hiro, convinced that foul play has taken place, while the rest of her friends waver between partially believing her, to complete disbelief.

    This is a real page-turner that involves lots of suspense and mystery along with believable dialog and situations. Although this is the third book in a series, the story definitely stands on its own. There is a small amount of referral back to earlier books, but it is easy to understand the story-line, and is not confusing. I have not read the other two, but did not have trouble following Below the Surface. The author states this is the end of this series. I hope not, because I would like to revisit these characters after they have had some high school experiences.

    I was pleased with the way the author handled the book's characters that had fears which ran the gamut from swimming under water to doubts about fitting in. Also, at the end of the book, the author has some great advice about fear, and what should be done when one experiences it. I appreciated that this was a clean story written from a Christian point-of-view. Although this book is supposed to geared toward young adults, the story and characters are so well-done that adults would like this tale as well. I certainly enjoyed it, and highly recommend this 5-star book to adults, young and old alike.

    The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book through Zonderkids/Thomas Nelson Publishing for the purpose of review. All opinions expressed are my own, and I have not been compensated in any other manner. Despite my receiving the book free, it has not influenced my judgment, and I have given an honest opinion.
