Book Synopsis

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.

SUNSHINE STATE AWARD FINALIST!

    Skink No surrender was an all around good book! I found this book very interesting in many different ways including its setting and how it was so action packed. There was also a few things that I didn't like about the book. One thing I didn't like about the book is that in this book the author made it seem like Skink was a superhuman, for example Skink got his foot run over by a car and it wasn't that big of a deal to him also he got shot in the chest but he was still fine. Which made it kinda unrealistic, but overall this was a very good book and I rate it 4 out of 5 stars!

    Not up to snuff for a Carl Hiaasen book. Not once did I laugh, giggle, or snort as I usually do with his other books. But it was a good read.

    Great book with an adventurous story and a great message for all of us living in Florida! Since I'm in Okaloosa County, it was fun to read about places out here I've been. The Choctawhatchee from the Alabama line to the bay is one of the few unspoiled rivers left. Carl does a great service for Florida by writing entertaining books that keep us enthralled and promote the conservation of our habitat.
