The Academy: Ghost Bird series in a different look at the very beginning. Read Introductions with a whole new perspective--the boys'.
Luke Taylor can't seem to ever relate to his brother, North. They're like night and day: North is rigid and intense where Luke is playful and a dreamer, his head often in the clouds. Being around each other too long can be difficult. The Academy and Luke's friends helped to bring them together, and Luke will be forever grateful, but North is just no fun sometimes. Luke can't wait for the new job at the high school this year. He's eager to expand his friendship circle…and maybe having a project to focus on will help North blow off some steam.
When the Academy hires the team on a small side job, Luke and North are forced to stick together. The brothers are on the job, but they struggle to communicate and work together.
The rest of the team are reluctant and dragging their feet on their current mission. Something about a girl having trouble at home. Who is this Sang Sorenson and how can one shy, mysterious girl turn a dedicated Academy team upside down nearly overnight? The brothers need to find out. But if they can't come together, they not only risk losing her but their differences might just tear the entire team apart.
