Finn has always been different, and in the tiny fishing village of Stromhead he sticks out like a sore thumb. Always told to keep away from the water, he's felt that something was missing until one day he dives in and finds that, swimming with the dolphins, he feels completely at home.

But his new friends are in danger of being injured by the rubbish that floats out into the water - and now a supermarket is going to release thousands of balloons that could drift out to sea and cause even more damage. Desperate to help the dolphins, Finn goes to the Lighthouse Crew, a group of kids who have always left Finn out. Will they be able to set aside their differences to save the dolphins? And what will Finn discover about his past along the way?

A moving adventure about the impact of plastic pollution on our seas, and the campaigning power of friendship from the award-winning Elizabeth Laird, illustrated by Peter Bailey.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A lively and inspiring tale of village life and the dangers to wildlife of releasing balloons. * The Sunday Times *
Laird brings important real-life issues to this exciting adventure set against the rugged Scottish landscape. Peter Bailey's atmospheric black and white illustrations bring the story to life and Laird gently reminds us that we all have a responsibility to take care of our precious marine life. * Lancashire Evening Post *
[B]rilliantly captures the problem of how an outsider can find a place where they truly belong . . . it is also a powerful story about the terrible threat to the sea and all the creatures that live in it from the casual discarding of plastic waste. -- Julia Eccleshare, Lovereading4kids.co.uk Book of the Month
