This sequel to Dog Daze , The Great Cat Cape, and Secondhand Horses features Esther, who has just found out her family is moving. When the S.A.V.E. Squad finds two injured owls, they jump right in to help. And since this is the last rescue Esther expects to have with the Squad, she wants it to be the best.

Wildlife rescue is meant to help the injured owls return to the wild, and this means the girls aren’t allowed to get close to them. So instead, they turn their focus to finding out who tried to hurt them. As Esther grows increasingly frustrated by her impending move and their lack of success in their efforts, she and the Squad start to bicker. Will the S.A.V.E. Squad break up, just in time to add a new member – someone Esther doesn’t even trust?

The S.A.V.E. Squad series features four girls from different backgrounds who have become best friends and work together for good causes. Although they have their squabbles, they stick with each other, no matter what. Modeling faith, friendship, and service, this series is a fun read for young girls.
