Overview

A wildly entertaining adventure involving snakes, grizzlies, a menacing drone, a missing father, and the kid determined to find him. In classic Hiaasen fashion, the animals here are wild, and the people are wilder!

Some facts about Billy Dickens:
* He once saw a biker swerve across the road in order to run over a snake.
* Later, that motorcycle somehow ended up at the bottom of a canal.
* Billy isn’t the type to let things go.
Some facts about Billy’s family:
* They’ve lived in six different Florida towns because Billy’s mom insists on getting a house near a bald eagle nest.
* Billy’s dad left when he was four and is a total mystery.
* Billy has just found his dad’s address–in Montana.

This summer, Billy will fly across the country, hike a mountain, float a river, dodge a grizzly bear, shoot down a spy drone, save a neighbor’s cat, save an endangered panther, and then try to save his own father.

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

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
