    It's five o'clock in the morning and still dark. Swimming outside the wave break off the Catalina coast, training for her next long-distance swim (she has already crossed the English Channel twice), 17-year-old Lynne Cox senses that something is following her. She worries that it might be a great white shark.

    Carin says: "Brief and lovely."
    "Beautiful, inspiring, thought provoking account"

    Story
    Would you listen to Grayson again? Why?

    Yes, most absolutely and already have ... it's like a fairytale only it really happened! Amazing mental graphics brought to life by Lynne Cox. Brought back quite naturally my own childhood thought processes and how wonderful it can be to engage with nature on a personal level.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Grayson?

    At the point where she realizes the baby whale has been following her. Lynne's excitement is most evident and palpable.


    What about Lynne Cox’s performance did you like?

    Lynne's voice is as soothing as a lullaby, her tone a song as she retells her most amazing story. Very vivid descriptions of the entire encounter. It is almost as if one is there alongside her in the Pacific water of Southern California experiencing the action and adventure with her.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    An amazing story of the interaction of man and nature, innocence, empathy and determination.


    Any additional comments?

    Will most definitely hear it for many years to come; moreover, will absolutely expect to engage my grandkids in this book. It is an experience that we would all dream of having at some point in our lives. Bravo Miss Cox.
