Transcript of Scat by Carl Hiaasen

A plot is the main setup of a story. This is like a guideline for the story.
Mrs. Starch, one of the scariest biology teachers at the Truman School, is missing. The principal tries to convince the class that Mrs. Starch is called for a family emergency, but Nick and Marta don't believe it. They try to figure out what has happened, but nothing is as it seems in Black Vine Swamp.
Plot
Part 2: Chapters 16-26
In the end we find out that the man named Twilly was helping Ms.Starch and Duane save the endangered Florida Panther. We also find out that the owner of the Red Diamond Energy Company was the one to set the fire. They did it because they needed to scare off the kids so that they wouldn't find the illegal oil drilling site. If you would like a more in depth explanation, I would suggest that you read the book for yourself.
Overall
Overall, I give this book a 8 1/2 out of 10. This book keeps you on your toes at all times. It is very long, and can sometimes be hard to understand because the author will change to a side story by starting a new paragraph instead of a new chapter.
Part 1: Chapters 1-15

Duane Scrod Jr. is a delinquent in Ms.Starch's biology class. He has a history of setting fires. During a field trip trip to the Black Vine Swamp, Ms.Starch goes missing while a wildfire is blazing. When Ms.Starch and Duane don't show up for school the next day, everyone believes Duane started the fire. We later find out that the fire was arson and someone had lit it.
Nick and Marta aren't convinced that Ms.Starch is on a family emergency call, so they go to her house to investigate. ( By the way, Nick is convinced that he saw a panther at the swamp.) They end up getting caught by a man named Twilly.
There is a side story going on the whole time this story is going on. The Red Diamond Energy Company is only ( technically ) allowed to drill for oil on section 21. Since section 22 belongs to Florida for a wild panther reservation, the company isn't allowed there. They decide to drill there anyway because it is supposed to be rich with oil. The head of the company will do anything to keep people out of section 22 so that he won't be put in jail for illegal drilling.
