Fuzzy Mud by Louis Sachar
Recommended for: Grades 3-5

To escape the wrath of class bully Chad, Marshall and Tamaya take a hidden route home through the woods adjoining their school. Undaunted, Chad finds them, and in their defense Tamaya throws a handful of woodland mud at him. The plot thickens when this mud, found to be tainted by waste from a nearby research facility, grows “fuzzy” and painful on contact. Parents, doctors, nurses, teachers and students contend with the consequences on the homefront, while the U.S. Senate holds the ‘Heath Cliff Disaster Hearings’ in order to prevent future environmental disasters. This intense story was a real page-turner, and I couldn’t wait to see how it would turn out.
