Can ancient, unknown creatures surface in your own backyard? Twelve-year-old Pablo has lived in a small California desert town his whole life, and the sticky black tar puddle by the corral fence has been little more than a nuisance to walk around or step over. But when an earthquake cracks open the bottom of the puddle and mysterious rock-like eggs begin floating up to the top, Pablo and his best friends, Lauren and Victor, realize they have a mystery to solve.
It's a scary, scientific mystery that will put the whole town in danger if Pablo and his friends don’t stop arguing and learn to work together.
