The Bigfoot Paradox by Rebecca Coyte will change everything you know —or think you know — about Bigfoot. J.T. is shy and doesn’t have many friends at school, but he does have a fascination with Bigfoot. It’s no wonder. In the town of Onion Weed, Bigfoot is a big deal. With Bigfoot sightings, the once quiet town goes berserk, and noted Bigfoot hunter Billy Matrix makes his presence known in the town in a big way. Soon, J.T. has to deal with Billy Matrix and his associates, a bunch of Sasquatch enthusiasts with personalities almost as huge as Billy Matrix himself. The hunt for Bigfoot is on with crews of people, fancy equipment, and an insatiable desire to find Bigfoot in the woods of Onion Weed. But nobody sees the truth coming, and J.T. is surprised at what is revealed to him about Onion Weed and its connection to the Bigfoot myth.
I loved the story and, overall, The Bigfoot Paradox is a fun, imaginative read that looks into the heart of Bigfoot myths and legends. Author Rebecca Coyte doesn't just give us a typical Bigfoot story; she includes the current reality TV hype and the ridiculous personalities of people who publicly hunt for legendary creatures. Then she adds a bit of a twist that might explain what is really going on, and reveals that through J.T. as he travels with Billy Matrix and crew. J.T. is a great young character, but he is overshadowed at times by the adults in the Bigfoot hunt, especially at the end of the book. Still, he learns a secret, learns a lesson, and perhaps comes out of the adventure with a story to tell and more knowledge than he had before. The Bigfoot Paradox asks us: What is the true story behind Bigfoot?
