In a concise way, this book follows the unfocused adventures of Mountain Boy (Roy), Beatrice Leap, and Mullet Fingers (who cares a little too much about owls) The book is quite entertaining, with the adventures that happen with the kids as they try to hide Mullet Fingers from the authorities. The book runs into its problems, and major ones, when it turns to the issue of the owls and Tries to Tell Us Something. We are then tried to unrealistic situations, including the climatic scene where the teenagers of Mountain Boy's school team up to fight the cliched, corrupt Mother Paula's. Mysteries: 1. Why would average, everyday teenagers team up to fight Mother Paula's? What average, everyday teenager cares about nature? 2. Why is every "corrupt, evil business plot" occupied with the Missing File plot device? This book is full of contrivances and unrealistic tidbits that it is quite a hoot indeed. Not worth the time.
