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?
Good kids' book, but I enjoyed reading it as well, and I am in my thirties!
Beautifully written book. Haunting.
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.
