Rated 4 out of 5 by from Island of the blue dolphins I think that this was a good book. When you start off it is a little confusing but then you get into it and things just keep happening. In this book your emotions go from exciting to sad to confused to wow!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holds ups over time This was one of my favorite books as a kid so I wary of reading as an adult. Much to my pleasure, I thoroughly enjoyed it again; in fact I’m sure I had a better understanding of the actual historical context to which O’Dell subtly alludes. It’s a well written story of strength and survival, and leaves you feeling empowered with out the need for any sort of love story or shocking scandal which is a refreshing change.
