Publisher's Summary

The number-one New York Times best-selling author Carl Hiaasen serves up his unique brand of swamp-justice in Skink - No Surrender.
Classic Malley - to avoid being shipped off to boarding school, she takes off with some guy she met online. Poor Richard - he knows his cousin’s in trouble before she does. Wild Skink - he’s a ragged, one-eyed ex-governor of Florida, and enough of a renegade to think he can track Malley down. With Richard riding shotgun, the unlikely pair scour the state, undaunted by blinding storms, crazed pigs, flying bullets, and giant gators.
Carl Hiaasen first introduced readers to Skink more than 25 years ago in Double Whammy, and he quickly became Hiaasen’s most iconic and beloved character, appearing in six novels to date. Both teens and adults will be thrilled to catch sight of the elusive "captain" as he finds hilariously satisfying ways to stop Internet predators, turtle-egg poachers, and lowlife litterbugs in their tracks. With Skink at the wheel, the search for a missing girl is both nail-bitingly tense and laugh-out-loud funny.

Critic Reviews

"Skink and Richard make quite a dangerous and entertaining duo in a story that careens perfectly from one crazy situation to the next. Reluctant readers (especially guys) will surrender themselves to this page turner. Cross your fingers that we haven’t seen the last of Skink!" ( Booklist)
"If you were pursuing your cousin’s kidnapper across Florida, you would want a man like Skink at your side. Maybe." ( Kirkus Reviews)
"Skink is larger than life.... A presence to be reckoned with." ( The Horn Book)

Clinton Tyree is all time favorite

It's great to have the governor back but I don't think a young adult books is the right setting for his edgy character. I didn't realize this was a young adult book and that was a disappointment - suspect it would have been a great read at 15. As always, Hiaasen is funny and creates enjoyable characters to take a ride with. OK book that could have been great.

Hiassen Alert for Adults!

I preordered this and wish I had waited until others had reviewed it. This is in the category of a "young adult" book - very young! I was looking forward to another Skink book but all the characters have been toned way down for the audience so you have none of the biting humor, outrageous characters, and frankly the fun to be expected with Carl Hiaasen. The reader does different characters well but the overall tone is as bland as the book itself. You expect Hiassen books to have an ax to grind, but this one presents a simple message to kids to not make internet hookups. Even that message is pretty ho hum.

This is no Stormy Weather, Double Whammy, or Lucky You.
