Booklist - 08/01/2018 Billy Dickens isn’t your typical tween—unless your typical tween has a thing for rattlesnakes. His dad’s been out of the picture for as long as he can remember, but when Billy gets ahold of his address—Montana, not far from Yellowstone—the savvy, brave oddball flies out there solo to track him down. What he finds instead is his stepsister, Summer Chasing-Hawks, and his dad’s new wife, Little Thunder Sky, aka Lil, both Crow Indians. Unfortunately, his dad’s not so easy to track down. As the story spans from Montana to Florida and back, Billy continues to find and lose his father, who’s in a bit of a wild goose chase himself, hunting down rich-boy poacher Lincoln Chumley Baxter. As always, Hiaasen’s latest is richly steeped in the natural world and all the peril it contains, from rattlers to grizzlies. Still, what may be most satisfying for readers are the personal connections Billy makes, whether it’s getting to know his new stepsister or making peace with his dad. Hiaasen’s fan base will relish his latest tale. - Copyright 2018 Booklist.
