Sorry I got this up late but sick again and did this from my phone. I will fix whats missing later. 😁
Here is what I thought
Song of the Whale was a cute book about a young deaf girl who is having a hard time fitting in at her hearing school. Then, one day a teacher tells her class about Blue 55 a whale who is a hybrid and no other whale can understand his song, so he is very lonely.
Iris is good with electronics and is always working on radios an she devises a plan to create a song for Blue 55.
Her grandmother is missing her husband and hasn’t been the same since he died. So when Iris wants to meet Blue 55 Iris and her grandmother set out on an adventure.
This was a cute book and it even had some chapters in the whales POV which where really sad as the poor whale was so lonely and I felt sorry for him so I was glad Iris wanted to help him.
Only thing I didn’t like was the fact that the girl and her grandmother took off without telling anyone exactly where they were headed. Other than that it was a cute contemporary for young readers.
