In this inventive, fast-paced novel, New York Times bestselling and Printz
Award–winning author Paolo Bacigalupi takes on hard-hitting themes—from food
safety to racism and immigration—and creates a zany, grand-slam adventure that
will get kids thinking about where their food comes from.
zombie apocalypse begins on the day Rabi, Miguel, and Joe are practicing
baseball near their town’s local meatpacking plant and nearly get knocked out
by a really big stink. Little do they know the
plant’s toxic cattle feed is turning cows into flesh-craving monsters! The boys
decide to launch a stealth investigation into the plant’s dangerous practices,
unknowingly discovering a greedy corporation’s plot to look the other way as tainted
meat is sold to thousands all over the country. With no grown-ups left they can
trust, Rabi and his friends will have to grab their bats to protect themselves
(and a few of their enemies) if they want to stay alive—and maybe even save the
world. Download and start listening now!
