Transmissions: Gone Viral follows a group of youngsters who investigate a mysterious virus plaguing animals and humans. Readers follow along as the characters work with a veterinary pathologist and an entomologist to study dead crows in their neighborhood. Interactive challenges embedded in the narrative engage readers in sorting evidence and finding patterns that may help solve the mystery.
