Product Details


“The book itself is just a wonder, part love poem about the Florida wilds, part road-trip novel, and part thriller. The second half of the book is a nail-biter to rival Cape Fear. I love Hiaasen for adults. I love Hiaasen for kids. But most of all, I love this Hiaasen, which brings the two writers together in one book.”  –Cory Doctorow

“Skink and Richard make quite a dangerous and entertaining duo in a story that careens perfectly from one crazy situation to the next. Reluctant readers (especially guys) will surrender themselves to this page turner. Cross your fingers that we haven’t seen the last of Skink!” — Booklist, starred

“If you were pursuing your cousin’s kidnapper across Florida, you would want a man like Skink at your side. Maybe.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Skink is larger than life…. A presence to be reckoned with.” — The Horn Book

“A high stakes, action-packed comedy with a lot of heart.” —VOYA
