Hilola Bigtree was a star alligator wrestler and the biggest draw for the gator island theme park of the title. But her death from cancer left the novel's 14-year-old protagonist Ava without a mother and the family's park in danger of bankruptcy. I'm only 77 pages in, but loving this one so far. A little uneasy about the somewhat low Litsy & Goodreads ratings though- hope it doesn't lose steam as it goes 🤞

Cathythoughts Sounds good. And great pic 👍🏻 2mo
saresmoore Love the photo, hated the book. I can‘t remember why, exactly, but it felt sort of contrived and gratuitous to me. Or maybe I was just resentful, being a Floridian. 🙃 2mo

Billypar @Cathythoughts @saresmoore @Cinfhen Thanks- the photo is courtesy of my fiancee/commuting companion/personal paparazzi 📸😎 2mo
Billypar @saresmoore Ah, good to know- I think I'm through enough that I know I won't hate it, but it could still turn south, and I get what you mean about how it could be contrived in some ways. I do like a good polarizing book! 2mo
squirrelbrain Ooh personal paparazzi makes you sound soooo important! Great pic though! 2mo
saresmoore I do, too! Actually, how much you‘re enjoying it makes me want to give it another go. 😂 It‘s been a long time since I read it. 2mo
Billypar @squirrelbrain Ha- I know, makes me feel special. 2mo
Billypar @saresmoore I reread so rarely that I've never given a book I didn't like a 2nd chance, but I'd like to try that one day. One reading goal among so many though 😬 2mo
LeahBergen @saresmoore I didn‘t like it either. 🤫 2mo
