I loved this story. I live in Florida about 45 minutes away from the author’s home town. There is nothing I love more than watching dolphins.

Captain Demi is the youngest tuna boat captain ever. She is smart, stubborn and as such willing to break the laws protecting dolphins from tuna fishing nets on the ocean. Demi's mind and heart is changed due to the intervention of the mythical god Neptune who turns her into a dolphin so that she can see life from the sea creatures perspective.

I really enjoyed this story written by a ten year old animal lover. It is a wonderful opening lesson on ecology. I give it an A!

I met the author at my local library and she explained that she wrote this when she was eleven because she had been around animals all her life. I bought the book to support her dream and because I believe in what's it about. It's a cute story that teaches the importance of taking care of our ecosystems and would be great for children and adults alike.
