Meh, I'm giving up on this halfway through. I just don't care enough to finish it. The main characters have adopted some wild baby dragons that they're (sort of?) raising while they're trying to escape capture from the authorities. They go underground & stumble upon some isolated humans who have formed a completely different society. This should be a fun, cool, series with some interesting world building, but somehow Yolen has just botched this. I've really enjoyed some of her other books, which is why it's so surprising that I don't like these. If I'd started here, I never would have picked up any of her other works.

I would recommend these works written by her:
"Foiled": graphic novel series
"Mapping the Bones": a retelling of Hansel & Gretel in Nazi-occupied Poland
"The Emerald Circus": a series of short stories & poems.
