Written by Karen Hesse

Mila is a girl who used to swim and live with the dolphins. Some doctors found her on a beach. She doesn't know much about human life. All she really does know about is the sea. She learns more about human life everyday. The doctors work their hardest to help her. She is so used to the dolphin life. She even knows how to talk dolphin. She doesn't understand why she can't go back to the sea. Some people are even afraid of Mila. That makes it hard for her to understand why people act that way. The creatures in the sea never judged her like that. That is why she must get back to the sea. Will she ever get back to the sea? You have to read the book to find out.

In my opinion this is a great book. It teaches about life and nature. It also teaches about respecting what you have in the world. This book will just drift you away from your everyday life. My favorite part is when she talks about her dolphin family and her life in the ocean.

I think this is a good book for people who like adventure stories. If you are looking for a great book to read please read "The Music of the Dolphins."
