Goonies meets the humor and heart of Gordon Korman in this new stand-alone adventure from the critically acclaimed author of Float, about a boy who must decide between his own dreams and his family’s offbeat legacy.

The McNeil family have always been professional hoaxers—tricking bystanders into believing they’re seeing legendary creatures like Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster. Unlike the rest of his family, twelve-year-old Grayson hates hoaxing and wants nothing to do with the business—even when the McNeils land a huge job and must pull off four sea-monster hoaxes in a week. But when things go disastrously wrong and Dad and Gramps go missing, Grayson and his brother, Curtis, are the only people who can finish the job and save their family.Readers will love the nonstop action, spot-on humor, the heartwarming and realistic bonds between the McNeils, and the accessible themes of family, friendship, and following your dreams that critically acclaimed author Laura Martin has woven into Hoax for Hire.
