Award-winning author Kristin O’Donnell Tubb delivers a funny and poignant middle grade contemporary novel about a boy known as the Roadkill Kid who is dealing with his parents’ divorce while he searches for a mysterious cougar in the Tennessee hills.

Middle school is always hard, but when you’re known as the Roadkill Kid, well, it’s even harder. Jack’s mom collects roadkill—it’s her job and she’s very good at it. Ever since Jack’s mom and dad got divorced, Jack has become Mom’s assistant. He feels like it’s his responsibility to keep her spirits up and step into the role of co-scientist. Except Jack just wants to play video games with his friend André and finally talk to Zoe, his conservationist classmate with bright green eyes.
