Anyone who can eliminate their enemies by eating them is a formidable foe. Anyone would be the Hazmats, insaniac shapeshifters whose mindless greed is threatening the continued existence of the Abyssmal Cities. Is Miriam Mermelstein doomed to follow in their footsteps?
Miriam Mermelstein is changing and it’s not puberty. Just what is she becoming? Well, it depends on whom you talk to. According to a certain nasty person, her fate is sealed and there is nothing she can do about it.
Invasion of the Hazmats is a humorous middle-grade fantasy adventure about getting along with difficult people. Best for ages 8-10.

The first day was going much better than expected. Here we were…already on speaking terms.
