Island Of The Blue Dolphins

by Swimmer4Ever123 (WorldCat user published 2009-07-03) Good Permalink

It was a good read. I wouldn't say that it was a GREAT book but it was definitley a page flipper, as it is told by a young native girl from an island. I read this when I was 8 years of age so I thought it was a GREAT read then.
