"The ladies and the teenagers here at the Community Welcome House really enjoyed the book Whale Song. We discussed the book every 3 chapters and looked at the meaning of the story. They thought it was a wonderful story of a girl who was loved very much by her parents and showed her love to all around her. Sarah was a very bright girl who was very impressionable by her friends and family. She loved the stories about the whales and all the Indian stories told by Nana. Our readers found the book very beautiful with the different friendships and the paths that Sarah, Annie, Goldie and Adam took, the breakthrough of Sarah's memory, and the reunification of Sarah and her father. What a beautiful story for all ages. Whale Song will be a required read for our ladies and teens when they come to our program."
