The fifth entry in the Strange Matter series tells the story of Michelle Boyd, a precocious 13-year-old vacationing with her family in Lake Wataga. The whole town is excited and baffled when a strange sea creature is spotted, inciting Michelle, her sister, and a neighbor boy into investigating a decades-old secret. This full-cast performance features convincing age-appropriate voices, clear delivery, and rapid pacing, though the portrayals of the children can be strident at times. At opportune moments, ominous music swells, underscoring the tension of the plot as the children become involved with uncovering the truth behind the monster's appearance.
