Well Ladies and Gents This is the Birthday's of all Birthdays. It's such a rarity, spectacle, anomaly so unlikely that it's a PHENOMENON!
Let's Begin, Shall We?
As I was saying it's The Owl Keeper Birthday!
Reading level: Ages 9-12
Hardcover: 320 pages
Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers (April 13, 2010)
Maxwell Unger has always loved the night. He used to do brave things like go tramping through the forest with his gran after dark. He loved the stories she told him about the world before the Destruction -- about nature, and books, and the silver owls. His favorite story, though, was about the Owl Keeper. According to Max's gran, in times of darkness the Owl Keeper would appear to unite owls and sages against the powers of the dark. Gran is gone now, and so are her stories of how the world used to be. Max is no longer brave. The forest is dangerous, the books Gran saved have been destroyed, and the silver owls are extinct. At least, that's what the High Echelon says. But Max knows better. Max Unger has a secret. And when a mysterious girl comes to town, he just might have to start being brave again. The time of the Owl Keeper, Gran would say, is coming soon.
Adventure of all adventures. What a fun suspenseful, can't wait to turn the page book. I couldn't help but feel like big brother is watching you. I am in Love with Christine's writing style. It was just right in every way. Max was a character who shined, So brave and courageous. The way Rose and Max interacted was perfect. His life wasn't what he thought it to be. All of his questions were deflected by family and family friends. Who was he to trust? Christine really has a way of making characters come to life right off the pages. I think anyone of any age would enjoy this especially those who enjoyed The Giver and who can handle a world of adventure!
Sounds so amazing right?? Take some time to visit Christine Brodien-Jones for their Birthday!
