A viral Ebook Sasquatch www.melissa413readsalot.blogspot.comI loved it! Anything about "Big ole Foot" I just love :) The author did a great job with this book in my opinion. The teenagers got on my nerves from time to time, but they are teenagers, they do that.As mentioned in the blurb, Jake's mom and dad got a divorce and Jake decides to move in with his father out in the middle of no where next to the State Preserve in their late uncle/grandfather Horace's house. Jake's sister Megan decided to live with their mom and her new rich husband. Jake takes on a job down at the market to help out with the bills and have something to do. Jake's dad just leaves him there for weeks while he travels out of the country to try and work out a deal some products. Not drugs, come on people. Jake gets a little crush on Nell down at the market. They work together along with this jerk named Barry. Oh, I wanted to beat his arse many a time. Jake starts looking into Horace's old papers because he was known as the local nutter that believed in Sasquatch. Jake goes out into the woods to meet with old Samuel that lived out there in a ranger type station. Jake would find out information because Samuel was a friend of Horace's and the man that owned the market would send Samuel out a box of food. Anyway, Jake keeps hearing things and smelling this horrific smell when he would go out in the woods. So he decides to get Nell in on his investigation. They go out with the video camera a few times etc. Suddenly Jake's sister Megan shows up saying she's staying with him and not going to soccer camp. Now we have the trio going out and trying to find info. They start getting major evidence and some other things I don't want to give away. Some really bad things happen with that jerk Barry and there ends up being a manhunt for the Sasquatch. This in turn leads to something so good that I can't hardly stand it. I love how the author weaved this story together and where she went with it. The ending was so very good. I would recommend this book to any Sasquatch lover, just as long as you don't mind the main characters being teens. It didn't matter to me! I thought this was a funny part in the book:She looked at us all, her eyes questioning. "They're real, aren't they? Please tell me I'm not seeing things. Or smelling things. That stink alone could revive a coma patient."**I would like to thank NETGALLEY and SPENCER HILL PRESS for giving me the opportunity to read this book for my honest review.**
