After everything that has happened, Grace moves to the Everglades to live with her grandmother, Birdee, and hang out with old man Rex, Birdee's "friend with benefits". Grace quickly befriends Dylan, Rex's nephew, and Dylan's girlfriend, Sadie, who is a die-hard teen activist. Sadie spends her time leading protests against the roadside zoos that run rampant in Florida with a total disregard for animals or the flimsy law.
One day while out in the marshes of the Everglades, Grace and her friends rescue an abused—and endangered—Florida panther. She and Birdee spend time rehabilitating the animal. But when the panther runs off, Grace follows it to Uncle Bob's, a large roadside zoo they all have been protesting. One that is illegally filled with a variety of endangered and exotic animals. Before she can rescue the panther, she and her friends are kidnapped by the ruthless owner and dragged deep into the Everglades for a hunting challenge.
Only this time, Grace is the prey.
During a sick game of cat and mouse, Grace and her friends are offered one chance at survival, but only if they reach civilization before being caught. With a small head start and very little supplies, only time and skill stand between the hunter and the hunted. But out in the Everglades, there may be more dangers than Grace realizes.
Against all odds, Grace must make it out alive and win, or everything she holds dear could be lost.

My (Grace Wells) Favorite Things!1. Hatchet, by Gary Paulsen.So my dad read to me from this book a lot, and it was his favorite. I started reading it to be closer to him, and realized the main character was a lot like me :) Wilderness survival junkie and all!2. Cinn-o-bunsThere's nothing better than a hot one of these babies! The ones at my mom's diner aren't bad, especially with all that cream cheese :)3. Spicy Cheetos!This one's pretty self-explanatory. Spicy. Cheetos. If it weren't for these bad boys, I wouldn't have the energy necessary to fight half the bear poaching, ebuilding bad guys I do ;)4. My dad's famous homemade chocolate mousseMy dad came up with this recipe for dessert one night when I was little, and he made it for me whenever I had a bad day :) There's even caramel swirls in it!5. Monty PythonThe kings of all comedy! Dad and I would watch their movies all the time, especially "The Holy Grail." There isn't a moment where "tis but a flesh wound" isn't appropriate ;)And last but certainly not least…..6. Moon-pies!!!These are heavenly pastries of marshmallow madness! The cornerstone of my diet and one of my true loves in life (other than Mo, of course), Moon-pies are just plainly fantastic. Birdee prefers the chocolate mint crunchies, but I love the double decker chocolates.
