This is an amazing book, which keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole way through reading this, unable to put it down! There is so many cliff-hanger parts in the story where I really did not know what to expect next. Sometimes it is sad and sometimes it is happy, but the whole way through it is very emotional and has a strong message

Yet again another great book by Gill Lewis. One of the best books I have read in a while!Sky Hawk was a great book because of if its gripping plot.
The main character Iona become ill (does she die? read the book to find out!), the osprey named Iris nesting in the eyrie on the island in the middle of loch goes back to Africa for the winter, but when a signal is not transmitting from her tag Callum fears the worst; she is lost or dead. Callum, Euan and Rob contact everyone they can in Gambia to go on a search, only one replies-an African girl called Jeneba. Despite Jeneba having two broken legs she was determined to go out with the search party to search for the osprey, due to this is she is one of my favourite characters.
My other favourite character is Rob because of a kind deed he does.
I absolutely love this book because of its format; the main part is from Scotland and then segments are in the format of an informative letter from Jeneba set in Africa.
I rate this book 9/10, I would definitely recommend the book to all Michael Morpurgo or Lauren St John fans because it is a novel full of wildlife and miracles.

Sky Hawk is a realistic story with convincing characters. It was well written and I could imagine it happening to me. Also there were vivid descriptions of the Scottish landscape and the osprey. The book has themes of friendship, trust and respect for the environment.
I liked the book because of the special bond between Iona and Callum. I think the story would appeal to girls and boys of 10+ with an interest in nature. I would recommend this book as a good read.

This.Is.The.Best.Book.In.The.Whole. Entire. World. EVER!!!!!
It follows the blossoming friendship between Callum and Iona and the osperys on Callum’s farm…
Deep in the breath-taking scottish valleys, across the loch, hidden amongst the rich, scotts pines, lies a secret so big, it is almost a matter and life and death. Callum and Iona and devoted the rare ospreys but when disaster strikes, they have no choice but to get help, to let someone else know…
Highly recommended for ANYONE!!! :D
