111:120 Wings of Fire: The Dark Secret by Tui T. Sutherland

Wings of Fire #4.  Starflight now knows how to find his tribe but the implications terrify him.  To learn that the Nightwings have been capturing and experimenting on the Rainwings is bad enough but now with Glory in charge of the Rainwings, it looks like a war may be brewing between the tribes which leaves Starflight in the position of having to choose between his tribe and his friends.  That is a hard enough decision under the best of circumstances but when Starflight ends up on the Nightwing island, he can see the starvation and suffering of his tribe and realizes they are only trying to survive in the only way they can think of.

The books continue to entertain and I enjoy the fact that there is character growth and bigger picture stuff that the characters are coming across and having to deal with.  While the writing is on the simpler side, I feel like the complex emotions being portrayed definitely elevate this series above much of the typical children's books.
