Carl Hiaasen serves up his unique brand of swamp justice in the New York Times bestseller Skink--No Surrender .

A National Book Award Longlist Selection

When your cousin goes missing under suspicious circumstances, who do you call? There's only one man for the job: a half-crazed, half-feral, one-eyed ex-governor named Skink. Skink joins 14-year-old Richard on a breakneck chase across Florida, undaunted by lightning storms, poisonous snakes, flying bullets, and giant gators. There are a million places cousin Malley could be, a million unpleasant fates that might have befallen her, but one thing is certain: in the Florida swamp, justice is best served wild.

I love Carl Hiaasen's work. This one did not disappoint. And it was good to know Skink is still out there.

More for the teenager/young adult readers. Some good funny lines. Always a pleasure, though, to read about Skink.

This is the first Hiaasen book I have read and WOW! The characters pull you right into the story and don't let you go! Richard's cousin runs off with a man she met on the internet. Richard figures it out and decides to track her down with the help of Skink (a former governor of Florida current eco-warrior who is presumed to be deceased). Read it! You will not be disappointed!

Very satisfying Hiaasen adventure! Hadn't known it was intended for younger readers, so style is simpler, and language is cleaner.

Although most Hiassen novels are pleasantly far-fetched, the age of the main characters in this one do not fit their thoughts and actions......or perhaps I am just out of touch with the youth of today!
