From School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-Eleven-year-old Annie's summer isn't going as planned. Her best friend Emma is spending most of her time with the rich, snobby girls in Twin Coves Point; little brother Will is being a pest; and her dad's new restaurant takes up much of the family's time. As she begins spending solitary time at the beach, Annie finds a dolphin that is trapped by fishing wire at the end of a rocky spit. She rescues it, and a strong bond is formed. Some aspects strain credulity-Annie's brother acts far younger than his years, and the dolphin comes just when Annie needs it most, under the most unlikely circumstances. However, the loss of a best friend is a universal experience, as are the various pains of growing up. Annie learns some hard-won lessons and achieves positive results, sending a hopeful message to the audience. VERDICT This relatively quick read will appeal to animal lovers and reluctant readers alike.-B. Allison Gray, Goleta Public Library, CAα(c) Copyright 2011.

From the Back Cover
When Annie spots a dolphin trapped in fishing line in the cove near her house, she rushes to free him. Everyone cheers when she returns to shore, but only Annie knows that she and the dolphin have forged a special bond. He's become her friend -- and keeps returning to the cove to visit and play!
Meanwhile, out of the water, nothing is going right. Annie's best friend, Emma, has changed, and keeps ditching her to hang out with snobby Morgan. At home, Annie's busy parents barely seem to have time for her, and she's stuck with her hyper younger brother always tagging along. Then a misunderstanding with Morgan makes things even worse... and ultimately leaves Annie alone and in danger. Can her dolphin friend help her when she needs it most?
