Free read Scat AUTHOR Carl Hiaasen Carl Hiaasen ´ 9 Read Scat AUTHOR Carl Hiaasen Read ↠ 109 The day before Mrs Starch vanished her third period biology students trudged silently as always into the classroom Their expressions reflected the usual mix of dread and melancholy for Mrs Starch was the most feared teacher at the Truman SchoolWhen the bell rang she unfolded stiffly like a crane and rose to her full height of nearly six feet In one hand she twirled a sharpened Ticonderoga No 2 pencil a sure sign of trouble to comeNick glanced across the aisle at Marta Gonzalez Her brown eyes were locked on Mrs Starch and her thin elbows were planted like fence posts pinning her biology book open to Chapter 8 Nick had left his own textbook in his locker and his palms were sweatingGood morning people said Mrs Starch in a tone so mild that it was chilling Who s prepared to tell me about the Calvin cycle Only one hand rose It belonged to Graham who always claimed to know the answers but never did Mrs Starch hadn t called on him since the first week of classThe Calvin cycle she repeated Anybody Marta looked as if she might throw up again The last time that had happened Mrs Starch had barely waited until the floor was mopped before instructing Marta to write a paper listing five major muscles used in the act of regurgitationNick and the other students had been blown away What kind of teacher would punish a kid for puking By now Mrs Starch was saying the photosynthetic process should be familiar to all of youMarta gulped hard twice She d been having nightmares about Mrs Starch who wore her dyed blond hair piled to one side of her head like a beach dune Mrs Starch s school wardrobe never varied a polyester pants suit in one of four faded pastel colors and drab brown flats She painted heavy violet makeup on her eyelids yet she made no effort to conceal an odd crimson mark on her chin The mark was the shape of an anvil and the subject of wild speculation but nobody had gotten up the nerve to ask Mrs Starch about itMarta s eyes flicked miserably toward Nick then back to the teacher Nick was fond of Marta although he wasn t sure if he liked her enough to sacrifice himself to Mrs Starch who had begun to pace She was scanning the class selecting a victimA droplet of perspiration glided like a spider down Nick s neck If he worked up the courage to raise his hand Mrs Starch w. Nick and Marta are two of the lucky eighth grade students in Mrs Starch s who just happens to be the most feared teacher in the history of the world biology class Every day they sit and pass notes back and forth to each other discussing their fear of being called onThe day after their field trip to the Black Vine Swamp something mysterious happens Mrs Starch doesn t come back and she is never absent and people start to wonder While there might be a scrawled note and a message on her answering machine that states that she has had to deal with a family emergency people especially Nick and Marta aren t buying itThey are all convinced that Smoke the kid in Mrs Starch s class that she dislikes the most has something to do with her disappearanceIn a whirlwind adventure filled with arson endangered animals the Ira war the Florida wet lands a money hungry wannabe oil rigger and panther poop Nick and Marta set out to find their missing biology teacherCarl Hiaasen definitely has a knack for adventure Every story he creates always has some crazy plot that makes you think as well as laugh In this case Hiaasen poses the problem of destroying the environment for monetary gain and how it affects the ecosystem in a hilarious manner He also throws in some other great themes to think about not judging people by their history the way they look believing in yourself and never giving up learning to live with what you ve got and working as a teamThese themes are so important for younger readers and sometimes older to learn and Hiaasen did such a great job of incorporating them into the book without blatantly stating them While this book has of a middle grade audience it is great for all ages of readers although there is a tad bit of language Overall I think the book was masterfully written and was a worthwhile and entertaining readReviewed by Tasha

Entertaining enough young adult reading Hiaasen s familiar targets developers grafters despoilers of the land etc but without the profanity and extreme punishments for the bad guys Principal white hat characters are high school kids and their relatives As an adult reader I m addicted to the author s main line of books with all their highly inventive extremes but this cadet series can be diverting too My favorite so far in this latter category is Chomp which was hilarious
