Overview

Awesome Wildlife Defenders, a junior novel, is the story of eleven-year-old Rebecca, who tries to cope with her panic attacks. Life becomes complicated when she is teamed up with Weird Cedar, on her endangered species project. Her friendship with Frieda is tested when Frieda has to work with Bossy Brianna, the class bully. When Brianna calls Rebecca and Cedar lovebirds, Rebecca is devastated. And, Rebecca and her mom are told their little rental home is being sold. While working on the project of the endangered northern spotted owl, Rebecca discovers that Cedar is kind and a talented artist who carries an enormous burden. When Cedar's father is released from jail, Rebecca wonders what's worse, a father who is in jail or not knowing who and where her father is? Cedar's grandfather takes them to the Raptors to watch a flying demonstration. Rebecca feels the magic when the great horned owl lands on her arm. Is it possible that this unforgettable moment will help her cope with future panic attacks? While staying with his father, Cedar disappears. Rebecca is determined to find him. The endangered species project brings all students together when they sew and sell felt owlets. Will her class raise enough money to adopt twelve endangered species? Will Rebecca and Mom find a place to live or will she be forced to change schools and lose Frieda and her other friends forever?

Reviews

"An excellent story about friendship, team work, mental health, family and the quest to save endangered animals. An excellent read-aloud choice, [that] would certainly initiate class discussions. " - Canadian Review of Materials
