Publisher's Summary

It's June - winter in South Africa, and Martine and her grandmother are enjoying a cold but beautiful walk along the beach when they find a stranded, dying dolphin. Martine uses her gift of healing to help it back to the ocean, but it's only the latest in a series of inexplicable beachings of dolphins and whales - and the start of a brand new adventure for Martine.After a last stolen midnight ride on her beloved white giraffe, Jemmy, Martine's class is off on an amazing school trip to the islands of Mozambique to witness the legendary "sardine run".It's a trip that goes drastically wrong, and Martine, with close friend Ben, finds herself swimming in shark-infested waters, marooned on an uninhabited island, and suddenly at the centre of mysterious submarine goings-on as she tries to save a pod of 100 dolphins from certain death.
