EXCERPT

“Shh,” Surpy hissed. “They’ll hear you.”


I looked at Johnathan and scrunched my eyebrows, wondering

who, exactly, Surpy was afraid would hear us. I whipped my head

around at a slurping sound to our left—my star-bright followed the

movement, staying directly in front of me. A sickening pop followed

the slurping, sucking noise. Blue light illuminated a giant blob. A

slimy, green booger—the size of a Great Dane. “Surpy, what kind of

gigantic creature’s nose did you lead us into?” I backed away from

the disgusting thing as it inched toward me. 



Surpy looked at me and crooked his head to the side, confused.

“No nose, Paige.” His eyes widened when he saw the crawling

misshaped lump of goop. “Run! Don’t lets it touch you! Toxic!”
