Really good YA novel by newbery medalist Karen Hesse.
Mila, a young girl has been raised by dolphins, then 'rescued' by humans who try to teach her the 'benefits' of human-style living. Milla, to the dismay of the researchers studying the rescued girl, would still prefer to live with her dolphin friends. Can Mila escape from her rescuers, who are angry at her ingratitude (and loath to lose a research subject) to return to her friends in the sea?

Fascinating book. It is written as a diary of a girl who was raised by dolphins and the writing style and vocabulary change as she is taught by humans. Quick read, very interesting.

This was an interesting fictional story of a feral child raised by dolphins of all things. You can find true stories of feral children on Wikipedia. This one though less feasible was very philosophical. It really made you think about what is to be a human.
