June Pritchard and her pet sparrow hawk, Zander, are both caught between following the rules and spreading their wings to fly   June Pritchard spends every summer with her aunts, uncles, and cousins in the big Victorian house that belonged to her grandfather. But the summer she turns thirteen, something has changed. Her mother is imposing new rules on her, and she starts to feel the thrill—and burden—of growing up.   When June is given a sparrow hawk to train as a pet, she takes on the task, eager to prove she can be reliable. But Zander the sparrow hawk is as resistant to new rules as June is herself. Together, they must navigate the fine line between responsibility and freedom.   This ebook features an illustrated biography of Jean Craighead George, including rare photos from the author's personal collection.
