Dolphin Song

Publisher: Hachette

Martine is not as excited as she should be by the prospect of a school trip to follow the famous sardine run up the coast of South Africa. As it turns out, she is right to be apprehensive as the trip turns to catastrophe when their boat is caught up in a terrible storm.

Saved from drowning by a family of dolphins, Martine and her classmates find their survival skills are stretched to the limits when they are isolated on a tiny island but worse is still to come as strange and sinister happenings lead the group into extreme danger.

A curious story with the potential to appeal to a wide range of readers, this book begins with deceptive simplicity but gradually evolves into a daredevil adventure with elements of eco-warrior crusading.
