Thirteen-year old Japanese-American surfer Solo Hahn is forced to take care of injured and orphaned raptors in Oregon after he accidentally injures a neighbor with Down syndrome while pursuing the Great horned owl that carried off his kitten.


Solo is terrified of birds.

I love literature, libraries, and owls. I like kayaking and hiking and camping all over Oregon with my husband and 10-year old daughter. I like cats, adoption, my brother with Down syndrome and my lesbian mothers. I'm particularly fond of Ben & Jerry's Coffee Heath Bar Crunch. I'm Contributing Editor at The Writer Magazine, and a frequent speaker at writing conferences, festivals, libraries, and schools. Hoot!
