The powerful tale of a girl who feels broken, and the dolphin who makes her whole. A story of friendship, hope and self-discovery, perfect for readers aged 9+, and beautifully illustrated in black and white by George Ermos.

Ró finds school impossible. She knows people think she's shy - and stupid. But when she goes to the bay each afternoon to watch the dolphin leap through the water, she finds the strength to keep going. Then the dolphin disappears, and everything starts falling apart.

Can Ró overcome her fears to find him?


I watch each rise and dip of wave
know Sunny must be out there
somewhere
wonder if he's missing me.
I remember that moment
when I touched his skin
and know that finding him
is the only thing
that can make
the aching stop
make me feel
not broken.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A heartwarming, hopeful read with accessibility and understanding at its core, I know this book will be very important to a lot of children who need to see themselves reflected in the stories they read. - Ruth Ennis, Books Ireland Magazine

A gentle and moving story of friendship, hope and self-discovery ... celebrates neurodiversity and the power to change. - Patricia Forde, Laureate na nÓg (Ireland's Children's Laureate) in Irish Times magazine

The star of this novel, the friendship between Ró and Cian (The Bean) is done perfectly, capturing that unsteady moment when fiercely loyal childhood friendship tips towards more romantic feelings. A really classy debut. - Irish Examiner

an uplifting story - Irish Sunday Times, Children’s Book of the Week

Molloy's powerful story about a girl who feels broken, and the dolphin who makes her feel complete, is enhanced by Ermos' illustrations. This uplifting tale celebrates self-acceptance, inclusivity and readers of all abilities. - Editor’s Choice, Reading Matters, Children’s Books Ireland
