I am a big fan of Sarah Lean's books. She really gets into the feelings of the main character.

This time with Hannah's grandfather getting increasingly incapable through Alzheimer's she is trying to work out why he wanted her to remember a certain date and why he talked about a whale? The answers may be found on the island in the bay that her sister is volunteering on for the summer.

With the day he mentioned approaching fast she must find help in the strangest of places and from unusual people. Her parents aren't too happy about what she is doing either.. A heart warming tale about a young girl's love for her grandfather and her determination to do what she can to make him better.

It will strike a chord with many children who have to cope with loved ones going through the same tragic condition.
