BookMark: Flush [Encore], by Carl Hiaasen, published by Knopf, 2005

April 5, 2006

Two years ago, humorist Carl Hiassen was a Newbery honor award winner for "Hoot", his eco-thriller for young adults set in Florida. Now Hiassen's got a new novel for younger readers, featuring a spunky brother-sister who out to bust a casino boat owner who's making some illegal discharges. Their adventures bring them in contact with Hiassens usual cast of hilariously warped characters. Middle schooler Jamie Glass has the review.
