Silverwing brought me through a flood of adventures! I truly couldn't put the book down! It is about Shade, the runt of his colony and is so small that he gets bullied for it. Then, one day, the colony goes on the yearly trip to go mate with the males and have babies. But, not two days have gone by and a storm approaches and the Shade is whisked away from his mother. He is very determined to go and find his colony before winter hits and reunite with his mom. Along the way, he meets friends, unexpected enemies, and unexpected allies helping him find his way. Does Shade have the strength in his tiny body to make it all the way? Will he find his colony in time? If so, are they at the destination already? This was truly a great read and I loved the leveled adventures and the moral of the story (I'll let you figure that out yourself!). I connected with the book because Shade and I are very small for age. I would recommend this book to 5th and 6th graders. The reason I gave this book a 5-star rating is because it was an action-packed book and the author gave great detail, as if you were apart of the entire book! What fascinates me the most is that the author chose bats as the main character, which is absolutely a great idea.
