The Red Diamond Energy Co. are illegally digging up oil in lot 22 which belongs to Florida. They naturally did not want anyone to find out about this. So, to scare the children on the field trip away they made a controlled fire. Little did they know a rare Florida panther ran away leaving two baby panthers. Which Twilly Spree had found and taken care for. But, one panther died.
dad was in the war there was an explosion, and they had to amputate his arm. So, Nick got a sling and tied the arm that his dad lost to his back so they go through the same thing. He is the Protagonist and he is a static character.
The Main Character: Nick Waters
Main Character: Marta
Marta is anxious. She is also not very good in tough situations. But, at the end of the book, she had been in so much life or death situations she started to get tougher. For example,in the swamp, when Drake McBride escaped from the police, Marta threatened to shoot him.


One of the main character is named Nick because he is a risk taker and he is sympathetic, for example when his

Plot
I recommend this book for people who are looking for an adventurous book and for someone who is very eco friendly. This book has a ton of suspense leaving you at the edge of your seat, making it hard to put your book down! Scat is a book for boys and girls, the book can relate to both sides. For boys, there is some adventure, and for girls there is some sad scenes.
Recommendation
Character I Most relate to: Marta
Marta, as I said, is not a risk taker, neither am I. But, she still takes the risks because of the greater good. If I was in the same situation as Marta, I would do the exact same thing. It is scary meeting a man who you never met before, then having to have full faith in him to save, potentially, a species.
Favorite Incident
Mrs. Starch's leg got hit by a bullet so Duane and Twilly take her back so it is only Marta and Nick. Then Nick has to climb a huge tree to get the panther cub back to his mother. When Nick put the cub next to the mother, then fell and broke his arm.
Anything I Feel Is Relevant
Twilly Spree was in another book by Carl Hiaasen called "Sick Puppy"
The Red Diamond Energy Co. (the bad guys) are real and same sign.
The End
Any questions?
