Fifteen-year-old Owl's crush on her 40-something science teacher is so sincere, so ardent, I couldn't help but admiring her devotion. She had a kind of Anne Shirley way of describing things--romanticizing the hole in her love's battered shoe and the rumpled tweed jacket he sports. And at first the fact that she watches him every night as he sleeps seems a little creepy, until you realize she's doing it perched on a branch outside his window in between hunting for mice and voles. Owl is an owl. Or at least she is when she's not in her girl form. A thoroughly sweet story about first love and friendship and what it means to be human. As well as what it means to be an owl.
