Beast: Face-To-Face with the Florida Bigfoot
Beast is a fast-paced adventure of guts and survival, this time with a paranormal twist, from acclaimed author Watt Key...Adam says he can't remember where he was for the two months he went missing in a Florida swamp. That's not true. He does remember. The truth: He was driving with his parents, and the car crashed when his father swerved to avoid colliding with a giant Sasquatch-like creature standing in the highway. Haunted by his parents' disappearance and hounded for claiming to have seen Bigfoot, Adam sets off into the deadly wilderness on a hunt for answers as to what really happened that night. The answer he finds is more terrifying--and more fascinating--than he could have imagined.

About the Author
"Walking a fine line between the fantastic and the realistic, Key creates a scary, page-turning adventure spun from his own experience (set forth in an author's note). . .This compelling cryptid fantasy has its big feet planted firmly in realistic survival fiction." --Kirkus Reviews
"Key's adrenaline-packed story chops through palm fronds with a machete, trudges through soul-sucking mangrove mud, and struggles to breathe above the merciless, snake- and alligator-infested currents of adventure as Adam, armed with supplies and a stolen boat, revisits the site of his parents' accident to track the Bigfoot. . .A thrilling journey of determination, ideal for fans of Hatchet by Gary Paulsen, as well as Call of the Wild." --Booklist
"As with all of Keys's amazing books, give this to the reluctant reader seeking an outdoors adventure or to someone who loves survivalist fiction." --School Library Journal
