The Capture (Guardians of Ga’Hoole #1)
by Katherine Lasky
Soren is an owlet who has been pushed from his nest by his older brother and picked up by several owls who work for St. Aggie’s, a school for orphaned owls.
As Soren gets more deeply immersed in the school, he finds a lot that seems to be at odds with being an owl. It seems to him that he is being trained for another purpose. With his friend, Gylfie, they endeavor to discover what is going on and a way to escape to find their families.
This is a good story for those kids who like the Warriors series.
