Beatrice Leep is the heroine of the best-selling novel Hoot by Carl Hiaasen and the film adaptation of the same name.


Beatrice Leep is a middle school student whom Roy Eberhardt first meets when he enters Trace Middle School.

When Roy discovers a running boy, Mullet Fingers, he learns from Beatrice that the boy is her stepbrother.

Originally, Roy and Beatrice don't get along, but she shows us that she is willing to help her friend when she rescues him from Dana Matherson, the school bully.

Then, with the help of Roy and Mullet Fingers, Beatrice finally gets to stand up against the diabolical businessman Chuck Muckle and save a colony of burrowing owls.
