After a last stolen midnight ride on her beloved white giraffe, Jemmy, Martine's class is off on an amazing school trip to the islands of Mozambique to witness the legendary "sardine run".
It's a trip that goes drastically wrong, and Martine, with close friend Ben, finds herself swimming in shark-infested waters, marooned on an uninhabited island, and suddenly at the centre of mysterious submarine goings-on as she tries to save a pod of 100 dolphins from certain death.
