Island of the Blue Dolphins


I will admit to being frustrated with this book. I couldn't remember how it ended from my childhood, so I kept expecting something that didn't happen (which I won't explain here in case you haven't read it). It seems to be a much different book now that I'm an adult. Still, I think survival books are fascinating, and this book has vivid and detailed descriptions. I think it's a "you have to read once in your life" kind of book.

I absolutely loved this book as a child and read it several times (I too love survival books, but they are always about boys...it was nice to read on about a girl). I don't remember the ending at all so I will have to re-read it now.
