Island of the Blue Dolphins - Scott O`Dell

Summary & REVIEW of the Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O`Dell

Category: Books
Genre: Children
Author: ScottO`Dell

I kinda got sidetracked from my reading the Angels Trilogy by this book.

This book has a John Newbery medal as the Most Distinguished Contribution to American Literature for Children. True to the medal it sure is a great read, even though it seems like it’s for children.

The girl was left on an island by her tribe because she went after her brother who was also left on the island. It’s like a the girl friday right? (from Robinson Crusoe) Hehe.

I won’t spoil anything… just that…. EVERYTHING is really great for a children’s book.

This story was based on facts. There really was a girl left on an island and all that.

One better read this. It is soooo nice and a tear-jerker too.
