Internationally beloved author Kenneth Oppel introduced us to alien plants with deadly toxins in Bloom. In the first book, Seth, Anaya and Petra found themselves strangely immune to the toxins and combatted them. Now in Hatch, the second novel in the trilogy, the rain brings eggs that hatch into large, dangerous insects. But this time, the three friends cannot help because they’re locked away in a government lab. Oppel escalates the threats and ratchets up the tension in this adventure with an alien twist.
