FROM WILD CHILD TO....?
Mila creates headlines around the world when she is rescued from an unpopulated island off the coast of Florida. Now a teenager, she has been raised by dolphins from the age of four.
Researchers teach Mila language and music. She learns, too, about rules and expectations, about locked doors and broken promises, disappointment and betrayal.
The more Mila finds out what it means to be human, the more deeply she longs for her ocean home. . . .About the Author:
