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

Can Ró overcome her fears to find him?

when I touched his skin
and know that finding him
is the only thing
that can make
the aching stop
make me feel
