The award-winning tale of a girl who feels broken, and the dolphin who makes her whole. A powerful story of friendship, hope and self-discovery, perfect for readers aged 9+, beautifully illustrated by George Ermos.

Winner of the Eilís Dillon Award for debut children's book at the KPMG Children's Books Ireland Awards 2024!

Ró finds school impossible. She knows people think she's shy - and stupid. But when she goes to the bay each afternoon to watch the dolphin leap through the water, she finds the strength to keep going. Then the dolphin disappears, and everything starts falling apart.

Can Ró overcome her fears to find him?


I watch each rise and dip of wave
know Sunny must be out there
somewhere
wonder if he's missing me.
I remember that moment
when I touched his skin
and know that finding him
is the only thing
that can make
the aching stop
make me feel
not broken.
