Hoot by Carl Hiaasen

I just read my first Hiaasen book a few months ago, so I thought it was time to read his Newbery Honor book, written for YAs.

As is standard in his adult novels, Hiaasen packs this novel with quirky characters, a Florida setting, snappy writing and a fun plot! This time, a middle school boy tries to save owls, make friends, stand up to bullies and cope with Florida weather all at the same time.

A fun, fast read - great for YAs!

FYI...they're making this into a movie starring John Cusack! It's actually going to start filming right up the road from me in the Boca Grande area. I see a roadtrip in my future ;-) I've never read Hiaasen even though everyone here raves about him since he's a Florida author. I really need to add him to my reading list. (Starting with "Hoot")
