I visited the aquarium and touched Hope 2 times!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A great book based on the true story of Winter, the dolphin. It's inspiring and uplifting. This is based on the hit movie. l love the book and movie!

I absolutely love this book. I love the story in general but when it was made into a movie I think this book meant a lot more to people.

i guess it was fine not the best.
