Skid by Rene Gutteridge
I just started reading Skid by Rene Gutteridge. I've been a big fan of her books ever since I read Boo. I also loved My Life as a Doormat and her first book in her Occupational Hazards series, Scoop. Skid is the latest novel about the Hazard clan, a family of homeschooled kids, now grown up, and their hilarious misadventures.
Skid takes up the story of Hank Hazard, who is hired by an airline to spy out the airline's employees by testing the limits of their customer service. Add a very jittery first-time diamond courier, a potbellied pig, a legendary pilot, and a few eccentric passengers and you're in for a bumpy--but funny--ride. Check it out if you like comedy.
