Synopsis:

Searching for Raven is a magical, adventure fantasy for middle-grade-readers. Kian, a young Native American boy, who lives with his father near Lake Superior, loses his very special horse, Raven, in a storm.

While searching for him, Kian falls from a cliff to certain death but is saved when the spirits of his ancestors transform him into a bird, but not just any bird—a bird with the mind of a boy.

Who will win when the boy’s feelings and the bird’s instincts clash? And will Kian the bird/boy ever see his father or his best friend Raven again.
