At either end of the lettering was a seal’s face, all eyes and whiskers, and the white head of a bald eagle. Hey, that’s Uncle Neal driving, Cody yelled.

Jackie's Wild Seattle book. Jackie explain Another great read by Will Hobbs. Shannon and Cory have come from New Jersey to spend the summer in Seattle with their Uncle Neal.

Jackie's Wild Seattle book. Things are different from what Shannon recalls of her uncle.

She drove us straight into downtown Seattle. We parked under a viaduct across from where people drove on and off the ferries. A pier full of tourist traps caught my eye, and we started browsing. In the very first shop, Cody found himself a color poster of Mount Saint Helens erupting. A conch shell, a candy bar, and a plastic tarantula later, he had maxed his weekly allowance. I was the treasurer and warned him there wouldn’t be any advances. I’m a grasshopper, not an ant, he declared.

JACKIE’S WILD SEATTLE was written in large letters across the side, with WILDLIFE RESCUE AND REHAB . Neal swung by his old place in West Seattle, the apartment he’d just left. It was right across the street from the beach. I just have to pick up my mail, he said.

How do you rescue a wild coyote trapped in an elevator in a downtown Seattle office building? How do you save an injured baby seal at the bottom of a cliff with the tide coming in? Fourteen-year-old Shannon Young, visiting from New Jersey, is about to find out.

Shannon's parents, both doctors, are working in refugee camps overseas while she and her little brother, Cody, are spending the summer in Seattle with their mysterious uncle Neal. To their surprise, Uncle Neal drives an ambulance for Jackie's Wild Seattle, an animal rescue center. Shannon and Cody join their uncle and his partner, a border collie, for nine weeks of breathless, sometimes reckless, often hilarious adventure chasing after whatever wild critters need help. When Uncle Neal is injured by a red-tailed hawk, Shannnon summons her courage and becomes the one who rescues the animals.

Jackie, who runs the center, believes in the "circle of healing," and in Shannon's circle everyone is in need of healing. Traumatized by the events of September 11, Cody is sure disaster is about to strike. Shannon wants to believe in Tyler, a teenage working off his court-appointed time at the wildlife center, but Uncle Neal thinks he's a ticking time bomb. Meanwhile, Neal is keeping secrets of his own.

Beneath the excitement, there's always an undertow of danger. Everything is uncertain, and home is so very far away.

This is a great book from both a teacher and parent perspective! My daughter LOVED reading it and my class enjoyed it as well. Great story line and use of geography throughout the Western Washington area.

Shannon and Cody Young from New Jersey have to spend the summer with their uncle Neal in Seattle, Washington. Neal drives an ambulance for an animal rescue center, Jackie's Wild Seattle. They all stay at the center with Jackie. Tyler is a worker at the center, but unlike the rest, he is not a volunteer. He was sentenced to work there by a judge as punishment for abusively killing a dog. The first time Shannon saw Tyler she could tell he was lost and loning for a friend. Shannon and Tyler become friends, and Shonnon finally gets him to open up to her. He has an abusive father anad a mother who is too afraid to leave him. Shannon and her brother, Cody, help their uncle rescue the hurt animals. While trying to free a red tailed hawk from a fishing net, Neal gets his thumb cut off. It just hangs on from the outer layer of skin. He is determined to free the hawk, though. Shannon finishes freeing the hawk. Then they rush over to the hospital. Shannon overhears the doctor talking and the good news is that they can fix his thumb. The bad news is that she finds out Neal has cancer. This was very suprising to Shannon for she knew nothing of it, neigher did her parents. Shannon decides to keep this information to herself. Since Neal can no longer use his right hand, it is very hard to rescue the animals. Shannon now takes over thsi responsibility. She rescues a baby seal that is badly hurt and about to be swept out to sea by the tide. She repels down a rock cliff. Then with the seal in a bag on her back she climbed back up the cliff. They give the seal some antibiotics, but it dies before they can make it back to the center. At the center, there is a bald eagle who has been rescued, but is unable to even stand by itself. Jackie and Shannon notice that Neal was becoming unusually close to this bird, that he named Liberty. They were worrieed becaus it was about to the point where they would have to put the eagle down, but this would devastate Neal. This was his way of trying to beat cancer. He seemed to think if Liberty made it, so would he. Shannon continued to rescue animals with the help of Cody. A bear cub was one of them. This was the second bear cub at the center. Shannon also got a coyote out of a public elevator. This was a huge advent that made the news. Tyler also rescued a baby fawn. A reporter wrote a big article about Tyler cutting the baby fawn out of its dead mother's stomach. Tyler's dad got mad about the article becuase he doesn't like Tyler working at the center. One night when he got drunk, he called the rescue center to come take a box of mice. This was supose to be an insult, but it didnt bother Shannon nor Cody. Tyler asked to go with them back to the center because he was afraid his dad would hurt him. Tyler's dad has beat him before. That night back at the center, Cody wakes Shannon up becuase a red-tailed hawk, which he keeps sort of as a pet, is making a lot of noise. The hawk never talks at night so Cody knows something is wrong. Cody, Shannnon, and Tyler run outside to see what is the matter. "FIRE!!!" Read the rest of this book to see what happens. It is a good book with lots of adventure.

In the begginning of the book, Shannon, an average teen girl, and Cody, her younger brother who loves major disastors, visit their uncle Neal's house for a couple long weeks because both of their surgeon parents have to go on a buisness trip in Africa. They did not know much about their uncle, so they did not know that he was a voulenteer van driver and animal rescuer for an animal rescue squad called Jackies Wild Seattle. When Neal went to pick up Shannon and Cody, he had just rescued a couple of baby raccoons that Cody took a liking to. Cody also met Neal's partner/dog, Sage, who didn't like kids.

Things happened, some good, some bad. like they met Tyler, a kid with an awful truth about animals. They also experienced many other things like animal rescues. This was a really good book, and if you are an animal lover, you would probably love this book. Although, the book seemed to stay only at Jackies Wild Seattle, and a couple of areas where they rescued animals. But, this is just my opinion.

This was a pretty good book, and with a scale of 1-10, it is a 7.5. It wasn't the greatest book, but it wasn't bad either. It had some funny parts, sad parts, and gruesome parts, so it was a well-balanced book. Tyler was a good character to put in, and so was Neal. They didn't tell enough about Sages history, even though she so dramatically hates kids. Jackie, the head of Jackies Wild Seattle, wasn't in the book enough to have her name in the title. It was a good thing that they put in a variety of characters, but sometimes you got them mixed up. I never really saw Shannons name in the beginning, and I thought that the book was crazy when they were at the beach in the begginning of the book, and Shannon wanted to try her new two-piece. It may have been confusing, but i enjoyed reading this book.

When Shannon and first Cody see their uncle Neal at the SeaTac airport, they have no idea what a wild summer they are about to have.

They are staying with Neal for the summer while their parents are in Pakistan working for Doctors Without Borders. Neal is not the same uncle he was last time the kids saw him. For one, he was laid off from Boeing and for another he shaved his head differing from his usually hair-filled head.

As Cody and Shannon soon find out, Neal is now a volunteer for Jackie's Wild Seattle, an animal rescue organization. Neal does most of the hands on rescuing, and then takes them back to the rehab center to heal.

The three move in with Jackie, the founder of Jackie's Wild Seattle. Her house is on the same property where the rehab center for rescued animals is.

The three (and Neal's dog Sage) rescue animals of all kinds for a few weeks and things are dandy. Until, an accident happens and a secret is revealed. Shannon's friend Tyler, who works at the clinic, has secrets of his own.

Personally, I thought this book was somewhat of a bore. All though it seemed to have a lot of action the voice was weak. People who enjoy reading about animals should read this because animals play a large part. Readers who like realistic fiction could also read this book. The story takes a lot of twists and turns and it has a lot of plot points, where the story sort of changes. Overall, Jackie's Wild Seattle was an interesting book, but not 5-star quality.
