Scat is a great book. It's about how a boy and a girl, Nick and Marta, are trying to solve a mystery about their biology teacher going missing in a field trip at the swamp. Everyone suspects a kid called Smoke had something to do with their teacher's disappearance. Later, Nick and Marta realize that he does, but not in the way that they think. Determined to solve the mystery, they investigate more and are pulled into an adventure at the swamp including an oilman, a man who camps in the swamp, and a panther. It's a really exciting mystery book, and I enjoyed it. My connection to this book is text-to-text because I read a book where people disappear and they find them in a forest. I give this book a 5-star because it is very exciting with many plot twists and hooks to keep you reading.
