Overview
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.

Heyborne’s easy-on-the-ears narration offers readily distinguishable voices for the characters of Richard, Skink, and Malley in Hiaasen’s first book for teens. Heyborne’s smooth vocal transitions from one speaker to the next, combined with Hiaasen’s irresistible plot and dialogue, is a pleasure to listen to. The adventures begin when 14-year-old Richard discovers that his cousin Malley has run off with a troubled and dangerous man she met on the Internet. After a chance meeting with Richard, former Florida governor Skink joins the mission to find Malley before she is harmed. Heyborne believably conveys Richard and Skink’s shift from strangers to comrades, as their quest finds them working in unison to overcome inclement weather, unpredictable animals, and worst of all, irrational humans. Hiaasen’s relationships ring true. His writing is spot-on, and, as a result, listeners will shirk their plans so that they may continue listening, eager to learn what happens next. Ages 12–up. A Knopf hardcover. (Sept.)
