About this title

Synopsis:

Key Biscayne, an island sitting off the coast of South Florida, it is here that young Mike Connelly realizes there is a mysterious connection between him and the dolphins living around the Key. His feelings grow stronger until one day, quite by accident, Mike discovers that he possesses a magical talent: he can communicate with dolphins. The dolphins and Mike become the best of friends, and their relationship plunges all of them into many adventures, some joyous and some frightening. After a disastrous trip to the Bahamas, Mike learns a fantastic secret that, if revealed, would change the course of world history. The dolphins, and their ancestors, have protected their secret for centuries, and now Mike faces the monumental challenge of keeping his vow of silence.

Review:

Whispers from the Bay has won the GOLD MEDAL in the Young Adult Category of the 2008 Florida Book Awards! --The 2008 Florida Book Awards

Young Mike Connelly has always felt a special connection to the dolphins that swim up and down the inlet past his family s home in Key Biscayne, Florida. As the boy grows older, the connection intensifies until the garbled whispers inside his head develop into clear voices. Eventually, Mike learns to communicate with these sea-dwelling mammals through his mind. When a near disaster almost claims the boy s life, the dolphins take him to the very heart of their top-secret world. What Mike discovers there could change very course of history. It is important you keep this a secret for now, the dolphins tell him. When Lucy Medina, neighbor and friend, is kidnapped from her home and hauled away by boat, there are no clues. As days pass with no leads, a frantic Mike turns to his aquatic allies for help. Will they find Lucy, and can they rescue her without revealing the secret? Whispers from the Bay is the first novel in a forthcoming series of three known as The Dolphin Chronicles. Author John Tkac s love for the sea and the playful dolphins who reside there resonates in his work, making for a realistic and exciting island adventure. Although it is billed as young adult reading, due to the age of the protagonist, it may work even better as an advanced middle grade novel. Either way, it proves to be delightful read for all ages and anyone who has ever found themselves drawn to these amazing creatures. If you ve swam with the dolphins or have dreamed of doing so, Whispers from the Bay is calling. --Curled Up Kids.com/Niki Schoenfeldt
