Unlike in Hoot, Hiaasen’s tone is much more relaxed in telling this story to young people: the forced “juvenile” atmosphere is gone for this humorous tale of detective story — here the detectives are two teenagers (whose exact ages are never disclosed, so they can be quite young or almost college aged) and their unlikely allies: a female gun-wielding bar-tender and a strange old “pirate” guy! It is pure fun — and a little bit of heart, pleading for the caring of our endangered nature.
