This book was about an investigation of an arson. There are a lot of clues to solve the mystery of who set the forest fire. Along with the arson investigation is the concern for the endangered panthers! My favourite part was when they found the Momma Panther. My favourite character was Nick's dad because he is an inspiration. He is inspiring because he had his arm blown off and he is still positive.

This is my favourite book because it is a mystery and it's funny. I also like all of Carl Hiaasan's other books.

CecyB, you are INSANE! This book is AMAZING! I am a girl who loves books about looking after the enviroment, and this book hits that right on the spot! I have watched the movie Hoot, but have not read the book, I want to, but my movie watching experience was interupted by many, "Aww!"s and,"So cute!"s from me and my mom. Lol. Thank you, Carl Hiaasen! Best enviroment books ever!

This children's novel is another eco-thriller, this one featuring Nick, who is in the eighth grade and lives near the Florida Everglades. After a class trip to the Everglades, biology teacher Mrs. Stark appears to be missing. Nick and his best friend Marta are determined to figure out what is really going on with her disappearance. On her last day in class she had an altercation with a student, Duane (also known as Smoke). At first Duane seems to be missing too, but when he turns up again, he is a changed student. What is going on?
On the class trip to the Everglades, Nick hopes to see a panther, an endangered species, but the trip is cut short. He thinks he heard a panther's cry, but isn't sure.
Meanwhile Nick is also dealing with missing his father who is serving in Iraq.
Lots going on, with an emphasis on the environment, and strong female characters as well as male.
