What a wondeful book! It was sad and yet inspirational. This young woman has so much inner strength and wisdom and an abundance of hope and optimism. Through tragedy after tragedy she just keeps on going simply for the sake of meeting the next day head-on. Loved it loved it loved it!

Island of the Blue Dolphins is a beautifully written book. The heroine is a good example for girls because she is an independent, creative, and smart girl. This book is really good for book clubs, summer reading, or for language arts classes. This book is mostly for ages 9-12.
