Summary: When mutant rats threaten to take over Staten Island, which has become a huge landfill, fourteen-year-old Sarah and her younger brother Mike try to figure out how to stop them.
The rat began biting the man’s ear, tearing at it, digging in violently toward the brain. A half-dozen rats fell onto his shoulders, and began to leap for his eyes. The young mate fell to the deck. Ellis, the youngest mate, ran from the stern toward an open cabin door. He was insane with fright, shouting. Sarah cried out when she saw the captain fall against a railing.
Several rats were inside her pants legs and climbing up her calves and shins. She felt their claws on her skin, digging in-then releasing. Marge threw up her arms, but the rats were already hurtling through the air toward her. They were ferocious beyond hunger as they landed on her head. Digging in-and releasing. Their claws dug in and began ripping the skin off of her face.
Kevin Lotito Title: Rats Author: Paul Zindel SUMMARY This story is about two kids named Michael and Sarah. Michael is ten and Sarah is 14 or 15 years old. They have just moved to Staten Island from somewhere they do not tell you they do say that it was somewhere with the sun shining bright and the smell of the mountains was very converting. Their new house is right next to the Staten Island dump where there have been rat problems for many years. The reason that the book is called RATS is because that�s what the book is all about.

Nope, I knew him as the author of a handful of creature features which packed the gore and excitement that most YA horror material lacked ( cough Fear Street cough ).
