Product Description

“The white dolphin is a sign that Mum’s out there.”

When they first meet, Kara and Felix can’t stand each other. But when they find an injured dolphin calf on the beach, they know they must join forces to save it. Putting aside their differences, they set out to learn the truth behind the sinister disappearance of Kara’s mother, a marine biologist working to protect the delicate reef. But menacing and powerful enemies are determined to stop them. As frightening forces stack up against them, how can Kara and Felix make their voices heard? They have no idea where their search will lead them, or of the terrible choice they will have to make…

“Gracefully written and intense – you can almost feel the salty air brushing your face.” Telegraph

“A lyrical, emotive, engrossing adventure that carries its environmental message lightly.” The Sunday Times

Before she could walk, Gill Lewis was discovered force-feeding bread to a sick hedgehog under the rose bushes. Now her stories reflect her passion for wild animals in wild places. She draws inspiration from many of the people she has had the fortune to meet during her work as a vet, both at home and abroad. Gill Lewis has a masters degree in Writing for Young People from Bath Spa University and won the 2009 course prize for most promising writer. Her first novel was snapped up for publication within hours of being offered to publishers. She lives in Somerset with her young family and a motley crew of pets. She writes from a shed in the garden, in the company of spiders.

    I love this book. I read it in one go and then re-read it after I finished. It has an amazing plot which keeps twisting and turning into a conclusion during which everything falls in place.

    White Dolphin is a book based on adventure and mystery. There are different points in the story where it is scary, sad or exciting. It is all about a hunt to find the truth about her mother. The main character is really outgoing but sometimes gets into trouble. The white dolphin in the story is a character which every one gets emotional over because of what happens to it. I would recommend this book to any animal lovers or any one who loves adventure.
