Falcon Wild by Terry Lynn Johnson

I received this book from #kidlitexchange to read in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Karma is a 13 year old girl who is raised and homeschooled and lives at The Birds of Prey Education Center with her mother, father and younger brother. She is excited that after this year she will go to a public high school. She is training a falcon named Stark; her family has found, and her father and her aunt found the bird’s owner and Karma is forced to take a family road trip to return the falcon home. After a terrible car accident it is up to Karma to endure the wilderness to find help for her father and brother who are trapped in the van. After one day, Karma discovers the GPS is wrong about the highway being close. She falls into a hole and an unlikely friend comes to the rescue. She continues to battle an infection in her arm, the weather, and the mountainous terrain to reach help for her family. Her only hope for safety lies in her love for the falcon, Stark, and the unlikely friend, she doesn’t really trust, Cooper. After 3 days Karma finds she’s been walking in a circle and ended up right back where she started at the wrecked van. She will have to trust Cooper to get help. Johnson writes in vivid detail of all the birds of prey described and even more detail of the nature walks in this middle grade read. Fantastically written.
