"Keating delivers a fun-filled, pitch-perfect book...An amusing, highly readable book about the perils of being 12 in a snake-eat-snake world."--Kirkus Starred Review on How to Outrun a Crocodile When Your Shoes Are Untied(My Life is a Zoo Book 1) Ana Wright's summer just got terrifying. She's finally getting used to living in a zoo (no, seriously--she lives with her family in an actual zoo), when she's assigned to work in the new shark tank. With her worst enemy. Forget about sharks! Ashley is the ultimate predator. And after Ana's favorite croc peed on Ashley's shoes, she's probably out for revenge.

This can't be good.

Jess Keating combines the quirky humor and animal-centric plots of Carl Hiaasen with the awkward adolescent antics of Lauren Myracle in this fresh new middle grade series!
