Take a look at our staff review for this week’s featured book!
By: Louis Sachar (He wrote Holes!)
Lexile Level: 700L
This is a tightly-focused story, told mostly over a couple of days. Three students -- a goody two-shoes girl, a scared older boy, and a bully -- find something weird in the woods outside their school.
The risk posed by fuzzy mud brings up all kinds of STEAM issues, from biofuels to genetic engineering to public health. But they're all tucked into a realistic story that's fast-moving, personal, and more than a little scary.
