A summer in Key West with an aunt called "The Bug Lady" and a drag queen uncle "Anita Margarita" changes 14yr old Kyle's life forever.
Stealing a car on the last day of Middle School sends Kyle Armstrong to stay with his Aunt Carol in Key West for the summer. She’s a forensic entomologist who studies dead bodies and bugs, two of his favorite things – NOT!
Kyle’s knack for science comes in handy when it’s obvious something weird is going on in the Florida Keys. Well, weirder than usual. Dolphins in the bay are acting strangely, a body with a bullet hole between the eyes washes up in Key West, and the marina gets blown up by a real-life underwater treasure hunter, all while the local Voodoo priestess predicts more bad things to come for Kyle.
Finding more than enough to keep him busy, Kyle’s summer blog is full of fun tales. From solving the mercury poisoning mystery, re-finishing Jack’s sailboat, SCUBA diving for treasure, and falling hard for the Dolphin Research Center intern – it’s more excitement than he ever imagined.
