When the red moon rises over the heart of the Okefenokee swamp, legend says that the mysterious golden gator Munch will grant good luck to the poor soul foolish enough to face him. But in 1817, when TWO fools reach him at the same time, the night’s fate is split. With disastrous consequences for both . . . and their descendants. Half of the descendants have great fates, and the other half have terrible ones. Now, Tumble Wilson and Blue Montgomery are determined to fix their ancestors’ mistakes and banish the bad luck that’s followed them around for all of their lives. They’re going to face Munch the gator themselves, and they’re going to reclaim their destinies. But what if the legend of Munch is nothing but a legend, after all?

This was a very good story about friendship, fate, and trying our best. It was very interesting and I loved the way it was written and overall the entire story!

Blue grasped her hand with fingers that felt so clumsy he might as well have been wearing mittens.
"You're normal," he said weakly.
Tumble pistoned his hand up and down. "I prefer," she said, "to think of myself as potentially extraordinary."
[Page 53]
