DAY OF THE WHALE
NOMINATED FOR THE 2023 YOTO CARNEGIE AWARD FOR WRITING
On an island ruled by whales, one boy is searching for his missing father, another is refusing to forget the past, and a girl is on the run. Together, they embark on an adventure of discovery that could anger the whales and crack their community apart.
A timely, important, gorgeous book. Challenging in its issues and a real tear jerker as well.
This is a gorgeous story about secrets and truth, about authority and corruption of power, about our relationships with nature and the wild and the people around us, about our responsibilities and our memories.
