Luke Brockway has a secret. As a result of an old family curse, he has tiny eagle feathers under his arms. No one knows, not even his brother, Austin. Now Luke and Austin are at camp, and it’s a challenge to keep the feathers hidden. The guys tease him about his “sun allergy.” A cabin mate pinches Luke repeatedly, leaving bruises. Luke doesn’t report the bullying because he fears he’ll be examined by the nurse, and she’ll find his feathers. He must find a way to deal with this bully on his own.

As the days go by, Luke, Austin, and their friend Megan face even greater perils. When disaster looms, Luke must choose between saving his friends and facing life as an eagle. Will Luke find a way to become 100% human again?

About the Author

M.C. (Peg) Berkhousen wrote her first poem in sixth grade and has been writing all her life. She was raised in Three Rivers, Michigan, a rural Midwestern town where she frequently visited the library and checked out Cherry Ames and Sue Barton nursing stories. After graduation from Borgess School of Nursing in Kalamazoo, Michigan, Peg continued to write about her nursing experiences. She won Michigan Nurse Writer of the Year for her story about using journalism therapy with a psychiatric patient who was aboard the USS Hornet when it was sunk by the Japanese during WWII. While working in Staff Development at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital, Pontiac, Michigan, she wrote, produced and directed staff training videos that were published by J.B. Lippincott, New York. She wrote the script and was Associate Producer for "Lincoln...In His Own Words," a project for Lincoln Life Insurance Company, narrated by actor Hal Holbrook. On faculty for Trinity International Health Services, Peg provided Management Training and Consultation to Franciscan Sisters at Matre Dei Hospital, Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, Africa. She ended her nursing career as Director of Clinical Services, Trinity Home Health Services, and is now writing full time. Curse of the Komodo, targeted to children in grades 6th through 8th, is her first published novel. The second two books of the Komodo trilogy, 90% Human, and Return to Komodo Island, are planned for publication in 2018. Peg resides in Ottawa Hills, Ohio. She hopes to continue volunteering at the amazing Toledo Zoo, where she once interviewed a visiting Komodo dragon.
