Booklist - 03/15/2023 Mia is looking forward to visiting her grandmother’s house in Maine, walking familiar forest paths, stopping at the ice-cream shop, and bird-watching, just the two of them. But she finds that a boy named Cayman has moved in next door and that he and her grandmother are chummy. Mia would rather not share Grandma, but the kids head off on a birding expedition, where they catch a glimpse of an enormous raptor that neither recognizes. In her determination to beat know-it-all Cayman to the punch, Mia posts about the bird online, and the town is soon overrun with photographers who threaten the bird’s safety. Mia knows she can’t undo the damage, but she’ll do whatever it takes to put things right for the bird and the boy next door. Mia is a thoughtful and adventurous narrator, and the bighearted book gives her a chance to learn and grow on her own terms. Lord splendidly captures the coziness of a coastal town and the exhilaration of responsible wildlife encounters. A rewarding summer read with depth and charm. - Copyright 2023 Booklist.
