Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 2: The Journey

Written by: Kathryn Lasky

First line: Soren felt the blind snake shift in the deep feathers between his shoulders as he and the three other owls flew through the buffeting winds.

Why you should read this book: With great difficulty, Soren and his new friends Gylphie, Digger, and Twilight, along with his old blind snake nanny, Mrs. P., arrive at last at the Great and supposedly mythical Ga'hoole Tree, which is very real, and full of very important owls who are a lot nicer than the owls at St. Aggie's, but still keep secrets and expect the young owls to obey the rules. Their little band is housed together but must train for different specialties, and Soren begins to learn what it means to be an owl, along with the other lessons he must master on his way to becoming a doer of noble deeds. However, he still pines for his little sister, Eglantine, and wonders about all the evil, known and unknown, that exists in his world.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You are a wet pooper with no sense of humor.
