The Shark Caller by Zillah Bethell
🍌🍌🍌 We are split bananas about this book
I want to be able to call the sharks. Teach me the magic and show me the ways.
Blue Wing is desperate to become a shark caller, but instead she must befriend infuriating newcomer Maple, who arrives unexpectedly on Blue Wing's island.
At first, the girls are too angry to share their secrets and become friends. But when the tide breathes the promise of treasure, they must journey together to the bottom of the ocean to brave the deadliest shark of them all...
Blue Wing knows that she has one last task to fulfil and then she will go, but does she have the courage to do it?
This interesting, gripping and heart warming story is a great insight to life on a hot island. I enjoyed following Blue Wing and Maple's story and friendship across the book. The ending is incredibly well thought through. I still look back and realise that Zillah Bethell has linked everything and given clues to the ending that are so slight that you could only notice them once you've read it.
I loved reading the descriptions of the island- and the only reason that I gave it three bananas is that I felt like the ending was also quite far fetched, and although a lot more of the book then made sense, I think it was a bit disappointing.
Overall, It is clearly written and funny, with no gore or violence - except that there are sharks involved, but no-one gets hurt) Happy Reading!
Thank you to Tales on Moon Lane for providing this proof.
