    I enjoyed this book It brought a tear to my eye I believe it is a true story as well This good would make a great earth day read There could be discussion about how the whale was in the situation and what responsibilities we have as humans to our earth.

    The author was able to interview one of the divers who helped rescue a whale near San Francisco and the up close perspective is amazing The divers all describe this as one of the best moments of their lives and I could feel that energy in the story An incredible experience so well captured.
