Some well done vignettes in a collection that chronicles a poor Hispanic girl's early life.
Many think, including my partner, that Hoot is a book meant for children. I disagree. The messages in there, like the rest of Hiaasen's books are to do with the environment, humanity and getting along. And one can never be too old to learn these lessons again. It begins with a simple incident in a school bus, where Dana Matherson, a school bully, is troubling a new kid in school - Roy. Roy has moved to a new town and is just getting used to the teachers and hot plains of Florida when he notices a wierd boy who runs barefoot and lives in a forest like area at the edge of a golf course. Add a new Pancake chain store opening in Coconut Grove and you've got a wonderful story with owls, alligators, snakes, soccer playing-intimidating girls and a curious police officer. I enjoyed Hoot so much that it had me hooked till the very last page. It sort of reminded me of Sick Puppy. Maybe it is a smaller scale version of the eternal story of people ruining natural habitats to build corporate chains, but the characters and incidents are so well written that they never assume pompous proportions. Served in just the right doses, with a little bit thrown your way to satisfy your curiosity every few pages, Hoot is a delight.
