Blogmas Day 10: Song for a Whale by Lynne Kelly

Blogmas Day 10: Song for a Whale by Lynne Kelly

In Song for a Whale, 12-year-old Iris becomes obsessed with a whale whose song is so off-pitch he’s become unrecognizable to other whales. She feels compelled to communicate with this whale and to let him know that he’s not alone. In fact, she’s willing to break family and school rules to reach him. She knows how horrible it feels to be misunderstood. As a deaf kid in a hearing world, she understands being an outsider very well. Even her parents (especially her father) avoid accepting her for who she is. But Iris is determined to reach out to a misfit from another species to let him know that someone understands his loneliness, even if she’s only human.
