Blown Away by Joan Hiatt Harlow

It started when everybody in the town of Islanorada thought this old guy named Sharkey was mean and cranky. But a kid named Jake went to Sharkey's for a job opportunity and he and Sharkey became friends just like that. Then Sharkey had some alligator hides that he had to deliver. So Jake went to go ask his mom if he could go with Sharkey but he and his mom kept on fighting about Jake staying to babysit his little sister. Jake's mom finally said that his sister could go to their next door friends, so Star went there. So Jake hopped onto the boxcar with Sharkey. Long story short, while they delivered the hides, they came upon somebody wanting to try to sell a donkey. Shakey wanted to buy the donkey, but $200.00 was too much. The guy was going to put the donkey to sleep so Sharkey said he would buy it for $100.00. After Sharkey bought the donkey (Jewell) but she would not move because the Jewell had to stay with a dog named Rudy. So, if you think you like books with a lot of action go check it out at the library...tons more action awaits you.
