It's the end of a Maya bak'tun (144,000 days), and people are panicking. However, teenager Max Murphy is panicking, too---for a different reason. He owes the ancient Maya Death Lords a favor. He has to bring the long-lost Yellow Jaguar to Xibalba, the Maya underworld, in ten days. Accompanied by his jungle friend, Lola, and Lord 6-dog (an ancient Maya king) and Lady Coco (Lord 6-dog's mother), Max faces headless phantoms, wakes up in his own coffin, gets arrested for murder, gatecrashes a wedding, and meets his favorite rock band, The Plague Rats, mysteriously being managed by Au Pukuh, the Maya God of Violent and Unnatural Death. The End of the World Club is great for adventure readers, or anyone just looking for a good book.
