    Roy's family moves a lot, so he's used to the new-kid drill. Florida bullies are pretty much like bullies everywhere. But Roy finds himself oddly indebted to the hulking Dana Matherson. If Dana hadn't been sinking his thumbs into Roy's temples and mashing his face against the school-bus window, Roy might never have spotted the running boy. And the running boy is the first interesting thing Roy's seen in Florida.

    Native Texan says: "Clever and surprising!"
    "Not his best, but enjoyable. Very kid-friendly."

    I am a big fan of Carl Hiaasen books, particularly when delivered in audio form, but this one was just okay. I don't know if he intended the book to be kid-friendly when writing it, but the topic, writing style's complexity and humor were very 'young adult'. As he usually has a darker undertone to his humor and will write on rated R topics with humor, I was a bit surprised by how tame this one really was.

    I would recommend reading Carl Hiaasen and would recommend this as a kid-friendly audiobook for the whole family to enjoy, but would not recommend it as one of Carl's typical dark comedies.
