I love everything Carl Hiaasen touches, and his latest novel Squirm is no exception. Billy Dickens sets off to a Crow Nation Reservation in Montana in search of his absent father. There he meets his step mother and step sister, and in classic Hiaasen style, becomes involved in their quest to save endangered wildlife from trophy hunters. But as always, this book’s charm lies in its hilarious antics and big, big heart.
