TERROR AT BOTTLE CREEK, by Watt Key

terror

The story: Cort’s life is kind of a mess: his parents have split up, and he can’t figure why his dad keeps trying to win back his no-account wife. Cort and his dad are slumming it, living in a houseboat so his dad can work the river as a guide–but this just means Cort can’t play school ball, can’t hang out with the guys, can’t even ask his next-door neighbor, Liza out on a date. It’s only when Igor, a monster hurricane with a monster’s name, shows up that Cort finally realizes what’s important after all: getting out alive, and making sure Liza and Francie make it too. They’re on their own, and it’s all on him.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Here’s a high-octane adventure story that will really appeal to readers who like a man-versus-nature genre of book. Grab it and go!
