Fuzzy Mud by Louis Sachar

Fuzzy Mud
by Louis Sachar [j Sachar] 

Fifth grader Tamaya and seventh grader Marshall have been walking to and from school together for years. When Marshall is challenged by Chad to a fight, he decides to take a shortcut home through the off limits woods to avoid Chad. Tamaya decides to follow him rather than walk home by herself, which is against the rules.

As Marshall and Tamaya make their way through the woods, they make a discovery that could threaten their lives, and the world.

This was a quick, but enjoyable read. There are notes throughout the book from Senate Hearings which take place three months after event, and serve to increase suspense as the reader tries to decipher the fate of the characters. This book is nominated for the 2017-2018 Golden Sower Award.
