about this item

It’s 1997, and twelve-year-old Marisa Gage is struggling with two crises that have turned her world upside down. Her mother had inexplicably left home just as a pod of nineteen orca whales—mothers with their new calves following a run of chum salmon—become entrapped in the enclosed inlet near her Northwest home. Everyone is drawn into the excitement of the whales’ visit—except Marisa. Confused and ashamed, she retreats into her shell like one of the razor clams that wash up on the inlet shores, despite the urgings of her worried father and her friends Lena and Harris, an upbeat Native American teen who she used to think had a complicated life—until hers became complicated.
