Book Review


Nara lives with her father on their quiet, small island. She dreams of finding an adventure on the island next to hers, but she would have to find a way to get there first. Then one day her father tells her that he has fixed their boat and that she can explore the other island while he looks for the “big fish.” On the other island she finds a large, green, noisy world to explore and meets a boy named Aran. Together they explore the island, and he shows her his favorite secret place which they now share as friends.
