The heartwarming and provocative sequel to Diane Hammond's Hannah's Dream, Friday's Harbor is the compelling story of a dying orca, the caring zoo that saves him, and the controversy that threatens his captivity.

It's been three years since Hannah, the elephant, departed the Max L. Biedelman Zoo, in Bladenham, Washington, and much has changed, including the appointment of new executive director Truman Levy, and the arrival of a failing killer whale named Friday.

With the help of marine mammal rehabilitator Gabriel Jump, and a team of dedicated though inexperienced keepers, Friday begins to recover. But not everyone believes he should be in captivity—a debate that explodes onto a national stage. Now, Friday's fate may no longer rest in the hands of Truman and the caring staff at the Max L. Biedelman Zoo.

Like The Art of Racing in the Rain and Like Water for Elephants, Friday's Harbor beautifully illuminates the special bond between animals and humans.

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Boring This was a tough book to get though. I thought it would be more controversial given both sides of supporting and opposing whale captivity. The characters in this book wre not memorable and i would not reccomend it for anyone to read.
