Publisher's Summary

Mila creates headlines around the world when she is rescued from an unpopulated island off the coast of Florida. Now a teenager, she has been raised by dolphins from the age of four.

Researchers teach Mila language and music. She learns, too, about rules and expectations, about locked doors and broken promises, disappointment and betrayal.

The more Mila finds out what it means to be human, the more deeply she longs for her ocean home.

©1998 Karen Hesse (P)2009 Listening Library

Constant "he said" I say "he says"

Read exactly as a playwright, actually saying the charactor who's line it is and what he's suposed to say then who says what next then who follows that person, ad who's next n his line n who goes after that. Constantly having to hear "he says, she says, I said, he says, I say, he goes here, she does that, I said, she walks there, she says", "he said"...all the way through the whole book, every single sentence starts off telling who's line it is, what's said or done. Do NOT chose this title, it will annoy you to much to pay attention to the story line.
