An excellent sequel to Island of Blue Dolphins. Also gives some info about California Mission indians. Readers will empathize with the characters.

Taken from the back cover of the book.
When fourteen-year-old Zia and her brother Mando, find a boat cast up on the beach near the Santa Barbara mission, they are determined to make the voyage out to the far island-the Island of the Blue Dolphins-where Karana, their aunt, had been left behind nearly eighteen years before, and rescue her. I still recommend reading it, it does tie up some loss ends to the first book.

And so, with a piece of cloth for a sail, a fish hook, a compass, and no sailing experience, Zia and Mando set out in their eighteen-foot boat for the sixty-mile journey, a journey filled with danger and adventure-and a reunion."

That just about says it all. The book was not as inviting as Island of the Blue Dolphins. The story is good but not great. I am finding it hard to explain what is missing but It lacks the strong soul the first book had.
