Reviews

"A fun romp that will keep readers hooked." --The New York Times

"Humorous, self-deprecating narration and convoluted exploits will keep pages turning till the satisfying close." --Kirkus Reviews

"Hiaasen's latest is richly steeped in the natural world and all the peril it contains, from rattlers to grizzlies. Still, what may be most satisfying for readers are the personal connections Billy makes, whether it's getting to know his new stepsister or making peace with his dad." --Booklist

"Hiaasen's ecological passion shows no sign of abatement, and neither does his faith in kid resourcefulness and family resilience." --Bulletin

"An entertaining, pulse-pounding story."-- The Horn Book Magazine

"Terrific characters and ingenious, fast-paced storytelling." --The Atlanta Journal Constitution

"Hilarious, heartfelt and delightfully surprising." --The Times Herald
