Fortunately, Mia has a mysterious gift that gives her a lot of comfort: she can communicate with a real, live manatee. Sometimes, they just look in each other’s eyes, and know each other’s thoughts. Other times, Mia’s gift carries her off to an amazing underwater world, filled with incredible creatures.

But there’s a problem with Mia’s gift, and it’s a big one. Mia can’t control it. Not a bit. She never knows when these trips will happen, or where she’ll end up. This makes Mia’s life wildly unpredictable… and at times quite scary.


A delightfully tall tale about life, love and manatees….It is an adventure of the heart and spirit….A pleasure, this book disguises valuable life lessons as pure entertainment.” –Kirkus Discoveries
