Reviews

"After a tsunami devastates their habitat in the Salish Sea, a young orca and her brother embark on a remarkable adventure. . . . Vega and Deneb tell their harrowing story, engaging young readers while educating them about the marine ecosystem. . . . A dramatic, educational, authentic whale of a tale."--Kirkus Reviews
"Parry creates a spellbinding, heart-stopping adventure for middle-grade readers--this time about a pod of orca whales and their plight in today's Salish Sea. . . . Parry's thorough research, observation, and creative writing combine to share the marvelous matriarchal familial world of orcas . . . Her descriptive narrative rises in intensity to match each new danger and resolves with a bittersweet yet hopeful finish. . . . Excellent."--Booklist (starred review)
Vega is a young orca whale being trained by her mother to one day be the group's Wayfinder . . . But when she and her young brother are separated from the pod . . . Vega must use her wayfinding skills to reunite them with their elders. . . . Parry weav[es] a great deal of information about orcas and their habits into the narrative."--School Library Journal
