Overview:

One White Dolphin :

A mother dolphin and her albino calf are in peril in this heart-pounding adventure from the author of the acclaimed 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.

Written by a veterinarian and brimming with bravery and beauty, this story of friendship, family, and community taps into the radiance of nature and dives into the important, timely issue of environmental protection and ecology.
