In this inventive, fast-paced novel, New York Times bestselling and Printz Award-winning author Paolo Bacigalupi creates a grand-slam story that will get readers thinking about where their food really comes from.
The apocalypse begins on a day when Rabi, Miguel, and Joe are practicing baseball near their town’s meatpacking plant and nearly get knocked out by a really big stink. Little do they know that the factory’s toxic cattle feed is turning cows into flesh-craving monsters…
The boys’ investigation into the plant’s dangerous practices uncovers a greedy corporation’s plot to sell tainted meat all over the country. With disaster looming, Rabi and his friends will have to bust out their bats to stay alive…and maybe even save the world.
