HIDEOUT, by Watt Key


The story: Sam hates remembering getting beat up in front of the whole school, so he’s taken to cruising the bayou by himself in his fishing boat. When he meets Davey, a kid his age who’s hiding out in the swamp all alone, Sam worries about him, even though it’s obvious Davey isn’t telling the truth about why he’s out there. Sam wants to help–but helping means lying to his parents and friends. What he doesn’t realize is that helping Davey is also going to put both of them in mortal danger.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: If you’re looking for an adventure story in an unusual location, take a look at this one, and at Watt Key’s other books too, including “Terror at Bottle Creek”.  Good stuff!
