I've been trying to find a book for someone - she read it as a kid (between 1993-1997) and can't remember much about it.
The bits that are remembered have to do with, or the title is something about a falcon, or peregrine (which makes googling impossible - every result shows "Miss Peregrine") There's someone in a dark cloak on the cover. And the hero is a teenage girl who deals with real issues in the book, like menstruating - which is why she remembers the character. As a teen, it was cool the main character dealt with real issues.
And that's literally all I have to go off of. Needless to say I've hit a ton of dead ends. Sound even remotely familiar to anyone?
So far I've dug up these ones which don't completely match:
- Throne of Glass
- Golden Compass
