Friday's HarborAbout Friday’s Harbor

  • Paperback: 352 pages
  • Publisher: William Morrow Paperbacks (October 15, 2013)

Hannah the elephant is thriving in her new home, peacemaker Truman Levy is the new director of the Max L. Biedelman Zoo, and life in Bladenham, Washington, has finally settled down . . . or has it? From his eccentric aunt Ivy, Truman learns of the plight of a desperately sick, captive killer whale named Friday.

Reluctantly Truman agrees to give the orca a new home—and a new lease on life—at the zoo. But not everybody believes in his captivity. Soon the Max L. Biedelman Zoo is embroiled in a whale-size controversy and Friday’s fate is up for grabs.

Like The Art of Racing in the Rain and Water for Elephants, Friday’s Harbor beautifully illuminates the special bond between animals and humans.
