They call him the Weirdo. No one knows much about the 17-year-old bear tracker with the horribly scarred face - except that he lives in the eerie swamp where Samantha Sanders found a dead body. But one night Samantha wanders into the dark swamp and meets the Weirdo. She listens to his shocking story, looks into his gentle soul, and becomes his friend. And when she stumbles across another body, Samantha knows that the Weirdo is the only one who can help her. Together, they begin a search for the killer who is stalking innocent victims through the murky waters and dangerous marshes of the swamp.

For over 25 years, Theodore Taylor has thrilled millions of young adults with his brilliantly crafted, chilling novels of suspense. The Weirdo is one of Taylor's best - an Edgar Award-winning mystery that combines heart-thumping suspense, realistic characters, and unforgettable images of the North Carolina swamplands.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzanne | 12/29/2013

    " I really enjoyed this story. In ways, it was like reading several books at once..a coming of age story about a disfigured young man, an environmental/wildlife story about the bears in the Powhatan Swamp of North Carolina and some mystery thrown in for good measure. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren Hawkins | 12/15/2013

    " Better than I expected!It's like Beauty and the Beast in the modern world trying to help a good cause! I won't say what it is, you'd have to read it! So realistic and yet, so entertaining! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginger | 10/14/2013

    " This wasn't the mystery book I thought it was going to be, but I enjoyed reading about the fight for wildlife protection. Taylor let the hunters tell their side of the story, too- that's rare in books with environmental themes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Miranda | 10/5/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura Papsun | 10/4/2013

    " Good mystery with an environmental and wildlife twist. I read with my middle grades students and they enjoyed it. However, it is not written in a chronological sequence, so it can be confusing for struggling readers. "

    " this book is awesome and there is nothing weird about it "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bradon Dickey | 4/18/2013

    " This book was really good. I like how they made it like a murder mystery,but they still have like a message to get from book. It is stand up for what you believe in and it doesn't matter what you look like. I think everybody should read this book because it has a good lesson to get from it. "
