Flip the Bird

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?

    "Brunner writes an impassioned story with real-life moral dilemmas. Abundant details of falconry, the result of the author's own falconry apprentice lessons... root the story solidly in a fascinating world new to most readers. An engaging story of a young teen finding what's most important in his life." 

    —Kirkus 

     

    “An exciting adventure into the art of falconry and the heart of a young man.” 

    —David Lubar, author of Hidden Talents and Character, Driven
