Fifth grader Tamaya Dhilwaddi and seventh grader Marshall Walsh have been walking to and from Woodbridge Academy together since elementary school. But their routine is disrupted when bully Chad Wilson challenges Marshall to a fight. To avoid the conflict, Marshall takes a shortcut home through the off-limits woods. Tamaya reluctantly follows. They soon get lost, and they find trouble. Bigger trouble than anyone could ever have imagined.
In the days and weeks that follow, the authorities and the government become involved, and what they uncover might affect the future of the world.

            This was a perfect mystery book. At the start, everything seems like just a mess of things happening, but then you start to connect the dots. I give this book a 5-star rating like what I did. The author of the book writes excellent books, and I recommend them to anybody in the age group.

              fuzzy mud, the main characters are Tamya a brave, nervous, kind, young girl who lives with her mom. in this book Tamya gets a rash, the rash is caused by this fuzzy mud and she also gives it to chad a bully by throwing the fuzzy mud at him. All off Heath Cliff gets it at the end the cure is from turtles since they are immune I give this 4/5 stars and I think this is a wonderful book I highly recommend it

                This is a super good book. Not only is it entertaining, but it has a very good lesson about pollution and how we need to stop polluting this beautiful place we live in. All of the characters were well described and formed, and I loved them all. This is just what I would expect from the author of Holes!! I could not put it down and I recommend it to anyone who loves a good science fiction book.

                      Oh. My. Goodness. This book was so cool! I had wanted to read it for a while now - but now that I read it I understood why people liked it so much. The back-and-forth chapters that went between the Congress hearings and what was actually happening were very secretive, but it all came together in the end. The ideas and thoughts mentioned in this book really made me think about what would happen if this was real, and the thoughts we must have and risks we must take to make out world a better place. I totally recommend this book. Have fun reading! ~Lotte Parker
