Review: Island Sting by Bonnie J. Doerr
Island Sting by Bonnie J Doerr
Publisher: Leap Books
Publication date: Dec 2009
Genre: MG (9-12yr)
The Story: Kenzie didn't expect her first summer in the Florida Keys to be murder. Or cute guys, awesome boats, endangered species, and gun-toting thugs... When city girl Kenzie Ryan moves to a Florida wildlife refuge, she plunges straight into an eco-mystery. Kenzie trades New York streets for Keys pollution cleanup, and now, instead of hailing cabs, she's tracking down a poacher of endangered Key deer. Her new home does have some benefits-mainly Angelo, an island native, who teams up with her to nab the culprit. But will they both survive when the killer turns from stalking deer to hunting humans? Island Sting includes notes on the endangered Florida Key Deer and the National Key Deer Refuge.
My Review: The Island Sting is a cute story about trusting yourself admist all obsticales. At least that's what I got out of it! Our heroin- Kenzie, just moved to the Keys. And she's totally out of her element. It's cute what happens to her and Angelo. Do you remember your first love, getting all tounge tied and bashful? That's what Kenzie and Angelo go through!
