Jane is artsy and free-spirited, trapped in a stifling home life. Things aren't much better for her at school where she feels confined by cliques and social mores. A kindred spirit of dolphins, Jane longs for open waters. When she falls for Sam, a sweet guy who's "off limits" because he's from a different "pod," Jane seeks the courage to remove the constraints in her life that hold her back.
The characters are true to life and richly drawn. I especially loved the interwoven story of Jane's brother John and his wife Desiree, which shows how life can get messy and still be good.
Dolphin Girl is a tale of freedom, family, friendship, and love. A thoroughly enjoyable read! ( )

I loved this book Jane is so different in a good way. she doesnt care what others think. Shes very much into dolphins and Sam. I love how she refers to clicks as pods. Im a big dolphin lover so i liked the little dolphin facts added to the chapters and how they hinted what was coming next it fit perfectly into the story. She has a great group of friends that dont judge just support. Jane and Sam deny their feelings but that just makes things that much more interesting. Great book i highly recommend it. ( )

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Dolphin Girl. It was about a teenage girl and her daily troubles with home and school. Jane wants to be free and relates to dolphins. Shel Delisle does an excellent job weaving a believable tale of romance mixed with normal teenage angst. A great read for anyone. ( )

"Dolphin Girl" is written from Jane's point of view, and the author does a good job of capturing that teen view of the world. Jane is a nice, mostly obedient, girl who has an inner "wild and free" girl who wants to get out. Her mother is so controlling and Jane eventually does break free of that control. Yet at the end of the book, the author lets Jane (and us) see the story from some other view points. I empathized with Jane's frustrations and yearnings and enjoyed the story all the way through. ( )
