Talon, Windsong

Talon, Windsong

What a page turning book. In this series, even though we do not have the poachers hunting the condors, it is still exciting, especially the part where Matica encountered the puma and big cats while travelling with Talon. I also like it that this book teaches you more about acceptance. While it is quite fun to be flying with Talon (As I was reading this book, I was sometimes thinking how thrilling it would be to fly with a condor), Matica found it a difficult decision when she is going for a holiday to Australia, especially due to the thoughts of separating from Talon while she was away. Furthermore, as Matica grows older, it may not be so appropriate to be flying with Talon all the while. She indeed has a lot to learn and has to slowly accept the changes/transitions in her life.

Over the Fence

Over the Fence

“Debbie Schrack has taken two immensely delicate topics involving abuse and examined them sensitively. Through not being overly graphic, this book is ideal for young adults and more mature readers alike. From the very first page, she has your attention and takes you on a journey of revelation. The two main characters are strong and described impressively. You feel as if you have a connection with both of them. By not going into the gory details too deeply, you are allowed to use your imagination as to their circumstances without being overwhelmed by the cruelty. Over the Fence is a must-read that will keep you engaged from start to finish.”
