5.0 out of 5 stars Fast-paced Mystery, January 2, 2012
By 
This review is from: Island Sting (Paperback)
Author Bonnie J. Doerr sucks you in from the very first word and doesn't let go until the climax of this fast-paced mystery, Island Sting. I read her sea turtle mystery, Stakeout, and loved it. That one was a bit longer and more involved, but equally as compelling.

This one is a quick read. You can just breeze through. You're guaranteed to fall in love with both the heroine, Kenzie, who is impulsive and speaks her mind but is caring toward people and animals, and the hero, Angelo, dark, handsome, and mysterious. At times he's prickly, but as time goes on, you find out why. And that makes you care even more.

A budding romance, struggles dealing with her parents' recent divorce, and a move to the country from NY City give Kenzie plenty of emotional problems to deal with, but she manages to live life large and spend her energy on things that count--making life better for others and the world around her.

Kenzie's big heart leads her to endangers her own life as she tries to rescue the endangered Key deer from poachers, help her friends, and organize an environmental cleanup. The tension builds as Kenzie puts together clues as she searches for the poacher, but she ends up trapped herself. Lots of high action, danger, and suspense.

Every classroom, library, homeschooler, and animal rescue facility should have a copy of this book. It's one middle graders and young teens will read again and again.

Oh, and if you aren't familiar with the Key deer, which I wasn't, I was fascinated to discover that they're the size of a German shepherd dog. These miniature deer are only found in the Florida Keys.
