AOT #6: Carl Hiaasen Podcasts Flush
The Tattered Cover welcomes Carl Hiaasen, a columnist for the Miami Herald, and the author of many bestselling adult novels including "Basket Case," "Sick Puppy" and "Skinny Dip." Carl's first novel for young readers, "Hoot," was also a bestseller and received a Newberry Honor Award.
His wonderful new novel for young readers, "Flush," was recently named a Winner in the New York Times Notable Books of the Year for 2005 and a Winner in the National Parenting Publications awards. Out to help his father prove that the casino boat, the Coral Queen, is dumping illegally, Noah rounds up all the allies he can – his sister Abbey, an unreformed childhood biter; Shelly, a bartender and a woman scorned; and a mysterious pirate. With their assistance, he devises a plan to flush the crooks out into the open. A plan that should sink the crooked little casino once and for all.
