Flying Blind by Deborah Cooke
Flying Blind is the first in Deborah Cooke’s Dragon Diaries series, the young adult spinoff of her Dragonfire paranormal romance novels. The Dragon Diaries are set in the near future, and the heroine and her peers are the children of the protagonists of the Dragonfire books.
Zoë Sorensson has always been told she has a great destiny: she is the Wyvern, which means she’s the only female Pyr (dragon shapeshifter) of her generation, and is supposed to have certain powers beneficial to her fellow Pyr. Trouble is, those powers haven’t manifested yet — at least not until she jumps to the defense of a bullied friend and undergoes an incomplete shift in the process. Partially as a punishment for shifting in front of humans, and partially to help her develop her powers, Zoë’s dad sends her to Pyr boot camp with a group of other young Pyr.
