It's Vivi Aguirre's thirteenth birthday and nobody seems to care. Her Basque dad has left home and moved to Calgary, while her mom is going to Red Bay, Labrador to make a movie and is taking Vivi with her. To make matters worse the film is about Basque whalers in the 16th century, and as far as Vivi is concerned whalers are by definition bloodthirsty lunatics.

But as she learns more and more about the long-vanished Basques, and comes to know the tough Newfoundlander who inhabit modern Red Bay, she reflects on her own family and on the pride her father feels for his heritage. By the end of her thirteenth summer, Vivi has learned more about love and life than she had in all of the previous twelve.

Set against the historic and awe-inspiring background of the Labrador coast, The Summer the Whales Sang is a touching account of one girl who comes to know and understand her family, and herself.
