There are five books in the series, and it is a pretty good book. Through the entire book he is trying to save his father, though does many other things in later books. Most of the book is set underground, in an underground city. So Gregor is called an "overlander."

ADDICTING. I CRIED WHEN I READ THE FIFTH ONE, CUZ THERE WAS NO MORE TO READ. It's about gregor, a dude that lives in NY, and his little sister, Boots. Boots falls into a hole behind the dryer and then Gregor goes in after her. Then they meet a giant cockroach. Now read this book, cuz seriosly, I don't kill bugs anymore.

Gregor’s mother works hard to make ends meet. His father vanished three years ago, and Gregor is responsible for babysitting his little sister. It’s a pretty dreary life for an eleven-year-old kid. But then baby sister Boots disappears down a vent in the laundry room one afternoon and Gregor dives in after her. They fall into the Underland, a fantastic world deep underground that’s populated by pale-skinned humans and giant talking animals. The subterranean dwellers suspect that Gregor is the subject of a prophecy that promises an “Overlander” warrior will lead them to victory against an army of rat invaders. Gregor has no desire to embrace his destiny—until he learns about another Overlander held captive by the rats. Gregor thinks of his father and accepts the adventure that lies ahead. He’s accompanied by quite the motley crew—Underland royalty, flying bats, a creepy rat, a big old spider, and a couple of giant cockroaches who take quite a fancy to precocious little Boots. Gregor’s reluctance to stay in the Underland does not extend to readers, who will be thrilled with the amount of detail that author Suzanne Collins lavishes on the world she imagines below ours—a wealth of magical creatures living a mythology of their own in a fantastic series of adventures.
