Publisher's Summary

The fate of Karana, heroine of Island of the Blue Dolphins, is revealed in this moving story of her niece, Zia. Finding her aunt is the strongest force in Zia's life, and in the hope of doing so, Zia moves to the Santa Barbara Mission, where she plans to go the Island where someone has seen her aunt - still alive after 18 years.

Zia and her brother attempt the voyage in a small boat, but are forced to turn back. Karana's eventual rescue makes a profound effect on Zia, who is caught between two worlds: the world of her mother's tribal past and the strange present world of the California missions. Although Karana's years of isolation have made it impossible for her to speak with anyone, she manages to give Zia what the girl needs most, the precious gift of freedom.

What the Critics Say

"An almost unbearably moving story of what happened to the Indian woman, Karana, when she had been left alone at the end of The Island of the Blue Dolphins....Bound to be among the outstanding books of the year, on everyone's list." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Not the best performance"

    We thoroughly enjoyed O'Dell's Island of the Blue Dolphins and expected the same when we began listening to this one. We were very disappointed. The reader reads way too slow and emphasizes the wrong parts of words and sentences. It sounds down right strange! My kids begged me to turn it off, so I did, and I read the hard copy instead.
