Hoot by Carl Hiaasen

Being the new kid is always tough. Being the new kid that is being hit on by the school bully is worse.  Roy just wants to get along and be left alone and then one day he notices the running boy.

Following the boy becomes his focus which leads him to a new friend, trouble, and an environmental issue.

A fun read about burrowing owls in Florida which is presented with the usual Hiaasen wit and humor.  If I taught an environmental science class this would be on my required reading list.

I read this when I bought it in 2004 and still enjoyed it again, always the sign of good writing.
