Bestselling author CARL HIAASEN will debut his first book for teens, Skink No Surrender. To avoid being shipped off to boarding school, Classic Malley takes off with some guy she met online. Her cousin Richard knows she’s in trouble before she does. Enter Wild Skink, the one-eyed ex-governor of Florida and enough of a renegade to think he can track Malley down. So with Richard riding shotgun, this unlikely pair scours the state, undaunted by blinding storms, crazed pigs, and giant gators on their search for Malley. With Skink at the wheel, the search for the missing girl is both nail-bitingly tense and laugh-out-loud funny. Teens and adults will enjoy this book! RANDOM HOUSE
