Jay doesn't believe in Bigfoot.

His dad loves hunting for Bigfoot, but searching for a mythical creature in the dark isn't Jay's idea of fun. Especially because he always gets stuck looking out for his little sister while his dad plays with the cool gear, like night-vision goggles. But while out on a camping trip, a large creature starts hunting them, and then Jay’s father goes missing. Jay is forced to start tracking the creature himself while still keeping his sister safe. It turns out that not only is Bigfoot real but it isn't the only threat in the woods. There’s a different kind of monster out here, one who is armed with a gun. Jay must act fast to save his father before it’s too late. And he needs Bigfoot’s help to do it.

This high-interest Orca Currents book is written specifically for middle-schoolers reading below grade level.

“Pulse-pounding…A terrific addition to the high/low canon for readers seeking a thrill.”
– Booklist
“A novel that asks each of us to question our own belief system and to ponder if seeing is truly believing. Highly Recommended.”
