On my book list for my future classroom - MacLachlan's best book since Sarah Plain and Tall. A very young protagonist but a soulful story that will touch the hearts of all ages. A hopeful books for our students from "broken" or "breaking up" homes.
This is the story of Karana, the Indian girl who lived alone for years on the Island of the Blue Dolphins. Year after year, she watched one season pass into another and waited for a ship to take her away.
