The White Dolphin by Gill Lewis

Two weeks ago I was supposed to and read white dolphin (AKA first published as One White Dolphin).

A mother dolphin and her albino calf are in peril in this heart-pounding adventure from the author of the acclaimed ecological novel Wild Wings.
Kara is not sorry she punched Jake in the nose—she simply couldn’t stand to hear him say one more nasty thing about her missing mother, or her out-of-work father…or her. But it’s more than a broken nose to Jake’s family: It’s fuel for the fire. They’ve had it with Kara’s family and their devotion to protecting marine life and saving the reef. Dredging the reef will mean fisherman can reel in more money. That’s what the town needs.
But what the town gets is an unexpected new kid, a Paralympics sailing hopeful named Felix. When a baby albino dolphin caught in old fishing netting washes ashore, Felix and Kara work with vets and specialists to save her and reunite her with her mother, setting off a chain of events that might just save the reef.      -Amazon

Kara is living with her dad, aunt, uncle, and Daisy her cousin. At night she dreams of standing at the beach at night watching a dolphin swimming away. At school she deals with a bully, and now she her dad is selling their boat.  A new kid moves to town and is rude to Daisy. Then baby dolphin washes on shore and it up to her and the new kid to save it and the nearby reef. They use Kara mom’s information, and their wisdom to do this. -me.

Tuesday I will review The Magicians Elephant by Kate DiCamillo.

I have recently sent these authors their interview questions!!
