A wildly entertaining adventure involving snakes, grizzlies, a menacing drone, a missing father, and the kid determined to find him. In classic Hiaasen fashion, the animals here are wild, and the people are wilder! Some facts about Billy Dickens:   *  He once saw a biker swerve across the road in order to run over a snake.   *  Later, that motorcycle somehow ended up at the bottom of a canal.   *  Billy isn't the type to let things go. Some facts about Billy's family:   *  They've lived in six different Florida towns because Billy's mom insists on getting a house near a bald eagle nest.   *  Billy's dad left when he was four and is a total mystery.   *  Billy has just found his dad's address--in Montana. This summer, Billy will fly across the country, hike a mountain, float a river, dodge a grizzly bear, shoot down a spy drone, save a neighbor's cat, save an endangered panther, and then try to save his own father. "A fun romp that will keep readers hooked." —The New York Times
