Review by Renee Vetter 

Nick is a pretty much normal kid. Except for the fact that his dad is of fighting in a war zone in a different country. And don’t forget the fact that he has the meanest biology teacher EVER. One day his classes go on a field trip to the black vine swamp. When the hiking is cut short by a small wildfire, one of the kids loses her inhaler. Well, Nick’s biology teacher Bunny Starch goes to get the inhaler but she doesn’t come out of the fire. Will Nick find his teacher? Will anybody find Bunny Starch?I really enjoyed this book mostly because it stayed on the topic of finding Bunny Starch the biology teacher. Carl HIaasen really puts a lot of thought into his books and all of the detail and little things. My two favorite characters in this book were Duane Scrod Jr. and Twilly Spree because these were characters who were kind of on the edge and uncontrollable by other characters.
