Flip the Bird


Kym Brunner

FROM THE BOOK JACKET: Mercer Buddie wants two things in this world: a girlfriend and the chance to prove to his master falconer father that hes not a flake. With hunting season fast approaching, fourteen-year-old Mercer has only a short time to work with Flip, a red-tailed hawk he irreverently named to show his dad that falconers dont have to be so serious all the time.

When Mercer meets Lucy, he falls hard for her gorgeous looks and bubbly personality. He thinks his love life is about to take flight, until he discovers that Lucy and her family belong to a fanatical animal-rights organization called HALT—a group that believes imposing any sort of restrictions on animals is a form of cruelty. Mercer soon realizes that if he wants to keep seeing Lucy, hell need to keep his love of falconry and his familys raptor rehabilitation center a secret from her, and Lucys involvement with HALT from his family.

With humor and honesty, Mercers story shows how growing up means making difficult choices--and sometimes, being rewarded in unexpected ways.

AUTHOR INFO: Kym Brunner is the author of the YA novels Flip the Bird, Wanted: Dead or In Love, and One Smart Cookie. She teaches 7th grade and lives in Illinois.
