Can a high-seas, whale-saving adventure repair the hurt between two friends?

How do you decide where your heart lies when it’s being tugged at from so many sides?

When Robin and Zo-Zo discover that their beloved lake has become a toxic sludge — the result of an algae bloom — they know they have to do something to fix it. But trouble begins when the two friends develop a crush on the same boy during a community meeting to save the lake.

To help repair things between the girls, Robin’s grandmother, Griff, suggests a high-seas adventure with a whale-saving old friend of hers. Out on the open water Robin must decide what’s more important: a relationship with a boy or saving the animals she loves.

Karen Hood-Caddy is an avid nature lover and the author of five novels. Her first novel in The Wild Place Adventure Series, Howl, was nominated for the Canadian Library Association’s Book of the Year for Children Award and the Violet Downey Book Award. She lives on Georgian Bay, Ontario.

Hood-Caddy seamlessly integrates information about ecology and animal conservation into the plot, which will both enlighten and entertain middle-grade readers.
