    This book was good. But it think it was a little scary and the storyline was sometimes hard to follow. It could have been more funny, but it was good.

            I really liked this book because of the way the author wrote it. What happens is that when the main character, Tamara is taking a "shortcut" with her friend, Marshall, he gets beat up by another guy called Chad. In order to defend Marshall, Tamara grabs this weird looking mud and throws it at Chad's face. The next day, Chad goes missing, and Tamara has these weird little bumps on her hand which are actually single celled organisms that were mutated so they could survive in oxygen. They eventually spread and they were very deadly. I thought that this book was a really great book and I would love to read it again.

              Tamaya and Marshall have always walked to and from school together. But when school bully Chad challenges Marshall to a fight, they decide to take a different way. Chad meets them in the woods anyway, and a big fight begins. Seeing Marshall hurt on the ground, Tamaya takes the only form of defense she has: some fuzzy mud on the ground. Little did she know, that "fuzzy mud" contained dangerous single-celled organisms that had accidentally been let loose in a laboratory. And upon seeing a rash on the mud-throwing hand the morning after, she thinks the bad part is over. But in reality, it has just begun.
