FOREST OF WONDERS (Wing & Claw #1) by Linda Sue Park


The story: Raffa has discovered a vine that not only helped his injured bat to heal quickly–it causes Echo to be able to talk. Afraid that the government will weaponize his discovery, the young apothecary sets off on a journey to prevent that from happening. Along the way, he makes friends who help him worm his way into the secret government compound where all the cruel experimenting is happening…and he’s horrified to find that people he knows well–really well–are at the center of it. Can the group of teens keep the animals out of harm’s way without jumping into it themselves?

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: If this story seems a little slow to get going, give it a chance!  The author does a great job of laying action and information until it’s a real cliff-hanger at the end. You’ll want book 2 right now!
