The Dragon Thief by Zetta Elliott

Jaxon had a mission—to return three baby dragons to the realm of magic. But when he got to their hiding place, only two dragons were left. His best friend’s sister, Kavita, is a dragon thief! Kavita only wants what’s best for the baby dragon. But as it grows and grows, how can she keep it a secret? Even worse, stealing it has upset the natural balance between the worlds. Jaxon needs all the help he can get to find Kavita and return the baby dragon to its true home.
