My book Chomp by Carl Hiaasen a Rebecca Caudill Nominee this year, was a very good book. A summary for the book is that it is about a boy named Wahoo and his dad Mickey who in their back yard have wild animals that they use for Television shows. The story mainly begins where a TV star Derek Badger from a survival show recruits Wahoo and Mickey to have their animals on the show. During this time Derek is not really a survivalist, and knows nothing which gives him dangerous trouble with the animals. We also meet Raven in this time with job of handling Derek and she also comes up a lot in the scenes. Later Derek says he wants to shoot the rest in the Everglades all real which they accepted. During this time in the Everglades Wahoo meets with his friend Tuna (a girl who gets beaten by her dad Jared), and Derek also gets hurt by a bat and runs away thinking he is a vampire. And if you want to hear more you have to read to find out. My opinion was that it was a good book. I liked the boom for the reason that there was always something going on, like at the start with the cool information about their life. Or the crazy incidents with Derek on the show, and definitely the action full ending. The genre is definitely realistic fiction because there are people that lend animals for livings and probably survivalist shows with people that don't know what they're doing. And there is a for sure possibility of incidents with abusive drunk father's. An audience that would like this book is an audience that likes things to be always happening and the reason is like said before it has many wired crazy moments. Which this is rather than a slow build up to a big moment. An internal conflict in the book was man vs. self, when Wahoo had to decide to accept the real show in the Everglades or not because Mickey wanted to quit. An external conflict was man vs. man, when Wahoo, Tuna, or Mickey, would fight Jared.
