The Flying Men (Los Voladores)

Long ago in the village of Totonacapan, the rain no longer came, and the earth became dry and parched. Soon, there was not enough food to eat or water to drink. Instead of giving up, the people came together to hold a special ceremony to bring back the rain. Let master storyteller Blanca Reyna tell you about the Voladores and discover more about this ritual that is still practiced in Veracruz today. Create your own wings to take home!

2 owls locked up in an orphanage they don't belong in, they have to work together to get out but not get struck by the powers of the full moon. They will certainly make friends along the way. Using team work they will have to do something they have never done before-fly.

Palo Alto is a interesting book that describes the lives of troubled teens living in Palo Alto, California. I'm more than halfway done with the book. Although the book involves a lot of drugs and unwise decisions the characters are very real. The characters aren't perfect, that's what I like about it. I know the book is in the process of becoming a movie and I plan on watching it.
