Synopses & Reviews
In this fresh and funny novel, a teenage falconer in training gets in trouble when he finds himself falling for a girl who is part of a radical animal rights group, now available in paperback.
Mercer Buddie wants two things: a girlfriend and the chance to prove himself to his master falconer father. With hunting season approaching, fourteen-year-old Mercer has only a short time to train his red-tailed hawk, Flip.
Then Mercer meets Lucy and thinks his love life is about to take flight--until he discovers that she belongs to a fanatical animal rights organization called HALT. If Mercer wants to keep seeing Lucy, he'll need to keep his love of falconry and his family's raptor rehabilitation center a secret from her, and Lucy's involvement with HALT from his family. Is love worth all the lies--and maybe even the loss of his bird?
