Everything is wonderfully written in the book down to the characters and locations which surround Bermuda.
As mentioned before, Micheal and Bibi are the two main characters but situations arise where they themselves each meet a new companion throughout the book in the course of their situation who come to be their best friend.
For Bibi, it's Rodrigo, a dolphin who accidentally trades soul places with Michael while he almost drowned on the fishing trip earlier in the book trying to catch Rodrigo as a dolphin.
Rodrigo helps Bibi come to terms with her past about her feelings on her departed mother.
For Micheal, there's Jill, Rodrigo's younger sister, who is physically disabled with half a tail due to originally being caught in a strand of rope, which Micheal frees her from shortly after meeting. Jill depends on Micheal to catch fish for her because of her disability but Micheal isn't good at it either and depends in the beginning on the other members of his dolphin group to provide for them both.
Jill comes to teach Micheal later how to catch fish using the practice of bubble rings.
The whole book is wroth a read, I couldn't put it down and I don't often find books that have me engagingly glued to them.
I was hooked on this book from the very beginning. Bibi was an awesome, easy to like main character. Michael was slightly less easy to like, but as I continued to read this story, he really develops as a character, and you can't help but like him as well.
Now, onto the plot. I don't want to give anything away, but it reminded me of a certain movie that I loved when I was younger. That is really vague, I know, but I don't want to give away a single thing about the plot. You'll love it--that's all I need to say.
Every other chapter alternates between Bibi and Michael. I have to say that I liked Bibi's POV a lot more than Michael's, but I still really liked Michael's. It's just that Bibi was my favorite character in the whole book.
Now, I know that I've been raving about book endings lately, and I don't like to repeat myself, but holy poop! The ending was so amazingly awesome! I was trying not to cry, and then I was trying not to cheer! That's not an exaggeration, I was seriously holding back tears. I feel like there could easily be a sequel how the author ended it, but at the same time it can be a stand alone book as well. It is just so good!
As soon as I finished this, I rushed back to Goodreads because I had to become a fan of Nick Green, and I had to write a review telling people how stupendous this book is. This is the reason that I still buy free books on kindle; because among all the garbage, there's that one treasure. It sounds cheesy, but it's true.
Michael and Bibi are thrust into a family together by the marriage of Bibi's father and Michael's mother. They don't quite get along. They are tolerant, but both long for something different.
Their something different comes along. Michael is rescued from drowning by a dolphin, and surprise, the dolphin and Micheal trade places. They now are in different worlds than they know how to live in. I really enjoyed how Nick Green was able to make their transitions realistic, well, the story isn't realistic, he just made it seem realistic.
I enjoyed his descriptions of life in the ocean. It took quite a bit of creativity to come up with describing the world as a dolphin would see it. He made it sound so interesting, but frightful for a human out of his element.
Anyone who loves stories dealing with the life of animals would enjoy this book. It ran a little slow for me in some places and was easy for me to set down, that is why I gave it a 3.5 instead of a 4 rating. The ending is very exciting and worth waiting for!
