Book Review of “A Possibility of Whales”

This is a review of the new book A Possibility of Whales  by S. D., a 6th grader:

(This review contains possible spoilers for the story.)

In the book A Possibility of Whales by Karen Rivers, there is a girl named Natalia.  She lives with her dad and doesn’t know who her mom is.  Natalia moves to a lot of different places because her dad is a famous movie star named Xan Gallagher.  She lives in San Francisco and makes a new friend named Solly (pronounced “sol-yay”).  Then she moves to Canada and makes a new friend named Harry.  His parents thought he would be a girl and they named him Harriet–Harry for short.

To celebrate Natalia’s 13th birthday, her dad takes her to Mexico and invites Harry and his parents.  Since Natalia loved whales so much, her dad let her go on a boat with Harry to see some whales, but the boat breaks and the whale saves them from drowning.

I recommend that 12 year-olds or higher read this book.
