Designated Editor’s Choice by Publisher

A family vacation aboard a rented sailboat turns into a horrible nightmare when young Kelly Wickmer is swept off the boat in a raging storm in the Bermuda Triangle. Alone in the wild sea, the timid young girl must struggle for survival and fight her fears of the ocean and its creatures, especially sharks. As darkness surrounds her, a nearby wave explodes in shimmering light and a dolphin appears.

The dolphin brings Kelly to a mysterious tropical island, unlike anything she has ever seen or heard about. Kids on the island befriend her as they encounter stingrays, sea turtles, iguanas, giant tortoise, the fish of a coral reef, and more. Yet, Kelly longs to go home. As she searches for a way off the island and the dolphin that saved her, she will have the adventure of a lifetime. If she survives, it will change her life forever.

As a marine scientist I’ve been lucky to spend a lot of time in, on, and under the ocean. Many of the adventures in the book are based on my own experiences in places like the Galapagos Islands, the islands of the Caribbean, the Bahamas, the Florida Keys, and Fiji. From swimming with wild dolphins and sharks to gliding among a school of shimmering silver fish at a coral reef 100 feet below the surface I’m always amazed by the sea and its wondrous life. On land, there have been adventures as well, exploring caves in the Bahamas or seeing giant tortoises and hiking up the side of a volcano in the Galapagos. I truly hope you enjoy the story and it helps you to appreciate the sea, its creatures, and their important connection to all of us that live on this blue planet, we call Earth.

I hope more people, young and old alike, will have the opportunity and desire to explore the ocean’s wonders, therefore I am committed to putting a portion of the profits from sales of this book toward marine education.
