A really wonderful and touching story about a girl raised by dolphins and how she returned to the dolphins. I really love dolphins they are my most favorite of all mammals and I would love to be a marine biologists just to be around dolphins everyday for the rest of my life.

I like this book, and I read it about 2 years ago. I decided to read it to my little sister, and she absolutely adored Mila and was heartbroken when Mila was unhappy. Karen Hesse wrote a very different story, perfect for anyone.

Milas life changed when she was taken from the dolphins she learned new things and new people. At first it was okay but then her heart was breaking because she loved being with the dolphins more than being with people.In the end she returned to the mammals she loved best Dolphins.

While on a routine surveillance flight a helicopter spots a young girl on an island. It turns out she was raised by a pod of dolphins after being lost at sea as a child. They name her "Mila" and bring her to an institute. There, they study her and try to teach her how to be "human". But while trying to help Mila, the researchers start to learn that you can take the dolphin-girl out of the water but the water lives in her soul.

The dolphin they live for today but I am human.To be human is to live for tomorrow.Why does tomorrow matter.What is important is now.

Sandy Says, When people don’t understand a thing, it frightens them. There are people who don’t know you. They do not understand a girl who live with dolphins. You are different, Mila, You look different, you sound different. But it isn’t the way you talk or walk. It isn’t just the way you look. Your thinking is different. Mila, you think like a dolphin. Sandy says, Humans see things only the human way. We look a the dolphin and we think it does not look human, it does not talk human, it does not act human. It must not be as good as human. Humans think that they are the best, that they know the only right way. I am confused. I know only this thing. I must have the door unlocked. Sandy says, someday the door will be unlocked. When I know the language, when I know the rules, when they unlock the door, I can run back to the warm sea. I can leave my human clothes on the beach. I can leave my human thought on the beach. I will go home.
