Opinion

From Library Staff

Dolphins are one thing that calm Adam and he bonds immediately with one when given the chance to swim with the dolphin. 12-year-old Lily, Adam's older sister, sees how the dolphin helps her brother, but she also sees the effect of captivity on the dolphin and is conflicted.
