The Ocean’s Way

What begins as a light-hearted adventure ends as a commitment when eleven-year old New York City girl, Holly’s passion for poetry gives her the opportunity to study marine life in Florida while growing as a person and learning to accept her best friend’s limitations and differences.

Holly presents a multi-media presentation for the school assembly program: ecosystems and biomes, the dolphins in Miami, alligators and the swamp in the Florida Everglades and manatees in Crystal River. The girls participate in an unexpected heart-wrenching rescue of pilot whales on Florida’s Gulf Coast. Both girls must overcome fears and personal disappointments in order to reach their goals. Holly now understands how keeping the environment in balance insures the continuity of all species.

Not only will you laugh and cry with these besties, but you’ll learn at the same time.
