An extraordinary story of a boy who protects a baby whale that locals believe is threatening their livelihood.Will Jackson is hiding out, a city boy reluctantly staying with his uncle in small town New Zealand while he struggles to recover from a brutal attack and the aftermath of a humiliating YouTube clip gone viral. After he discovers a young abandoned orca whale his life is further thrown into chaos, when he rallies to help protect it against hostile, threatening interests.
The boy and the whale develop a special bond, linked by Will's love of singing. With echoes of classic book and film The whalerider this powerful connection is utterly convincing on the page. It's a strong plot-driven, exciting story - with lots of drama, tension and romance. This is a beautifully touching, rich and layered story by an award-winning writer for young adults.
