    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.

    "HOOT"
    Overall

    I am very disappointed in Audible (and maybe Hiassen) for not clearly labelling this a children's book. Probably great for 8 to 12 year olds but NOT for adults doing a 10 hour drive. As a kicker, my Otis did not record the final chapter. I'd like to say I don't know how it ended but I do and did for the last 4 hours I listened. Get this for a youngster but not for literate adults.
