A story of a baby dolphin named Hope is rescued against all odds.

Exactly 5 years and 1 day after Winter, the tailless dolphin who inspired a major motion picture featuring Morgan Freeman, Ashley Judd, and Harry Conick Jr., was rescued, something pretty amazing happened. Just miles from where Winter was found, appeared another injured dolphin, orphaned from her mother and struggling to survive. The Clearwater Marine team quickly went to work, attempting to nurse this new dolphin back to health. After a tough fight fought by the little dolphin and by the Clearwater team, the dolphin grew strong and healthy. She now lives with Winter and crowds flock to the aquarium to see them play. Her tale is one of courage and triumph. She was named Hope and this book tells her story.

This is a story about two dolphins with an amazing bond between them. It is a about friendship and bravery. The two dolphins are Hope and Winter. They were rescued exactly five years and one day apart from each other. I think this true story is for kids ages 5-7. It teaches that there is always hope no matter what happens. It also teaches that you should never give up just like Hope and Winter. I read this book to my little sister and she thinks that the dolphins were brave while trying to survive. I think that anyone who likes dolphins would really like this book. review by Masha K, age 9, Boston Mensa
