Whale Story

We also read the first few chapters of Whale Story, a novel by Cheryl Kaye Tardif while at Bamfield.
Initially, I found that the main character didn't really fit an eleven-year-old. Sure, she put lots of emphasis on being that age, but it felt like her actual thoughts and feelings didn't really match the idea of being eleven. Her thoughts were based around it, but it felt like it didn't really fit. I feel like it has a theme of acceptance. At first, the main character had thoughts of not wanting to move, and leaving her friends. Later, she accepted the move and had an open mind, and it turned out she really liked the home and location. I also felt a much stronger connection to this novel than the previous considering that it actually takes place in Bamfield. It felt very relatable to the actual experience.
