Eliza and her two assistants Einstein (her dog) and new friend Amy need to get it back before enemy spies can get their hands on it.Can these three would-be 007s get the film, stop the spies, and get revenge on the class bully?

Wild Born by Brandon Mull

The children of Erdas are required to drink Nectar when they turn eleven to see if they will become one of the few to have a spirit animal.  Four children are about to discover that they each have spirit animal bonds which are rare links between human and animal that give great powers to both.  Conor, an indentured servant, calls Briggan the wolf.  Abeke, the young warrior, calls Uraza the leopard.  Jhi the panda comes to Meilin, the daughter of a general, and Rollan, an orphan from the streets, calls Essix the falcon.
