I really enjoyed this book! I think it is different from all of the other books I have read, because it shows you that almost anything is possible. I liked it when Karana tamed wild animals and built a house in a cave. This book has a sequel to it called, "Zia." Personally, I enjoyed Island of the Blue Dolphins better than Zia because I like when she has to live by herself, unlike Zia where she lives with people. Zia is Karana's niece. Island of the Blue Dolphins is my favorite book! I think you should read it!
I recommend this book because it is exciting to read. It is exciting because the author keeps introducing problems that need to be solved. I recommend this book to people who like Historical Fiction and Adventures.
