Can Noah save the beautiful bay where he lives from the illegal dumping of sewage that is threatening it? He’s certainly got a fight on his hands as he’s got to see off the dumpers who are the big businesses, backed by the corporation who love the money they bring in. Luckily Noah has a plan and it is a good one. A great story with a strong ‘green’ message.



Synopsis

Flush by Carl Hiaasen

Noah's dad, Paine, is a kind but slightly irresponsible fisherman, passionate about saving the local Florida aquatic life. When Paine discovers that a local businessman is running a scam from his casino boat, he takes the law into his own hands, sinks the boat and ends up in jail. The scam involves releasing the effluent from the boat's toilets directly into the water, to avoid the cost of disposing of it safely. Noah and Abby, his sister, take up the fight on Dad's behalf and enlist the help of Shelly, former girlfriend of Dodgy Businessman. Shelly knows that DB is up to no good and comes up with a plan to prove it. She gets a job as a barmaid back on the casino boat and plans to sneak a huge load of coloured dye into the toilets.

Reviews

Hilarious, yet serious about the environmental issues Guardian A gross-out plot likely to appeal ... A satisfyingly different kind of adventure book for kids Inis Aquatic high jinks in this entertaining ecological tale of responsibility and revenge The Bookseller With real villainy and real right and wrong issues but told in convincingly involving, over the top manner The School Librarian Flush is pacy and amusing. It will entertain readers with a sense of justice, a concern for the environment and an understanding that the simplest and whackiest ideas are often the best Writeaway!
