What a great idea - a book club on a blog!


Nim's Island, written by Wendy Orr, is delightful! A young girl lives on an island with her father, Jack, who is a scientist. Nim's mother disappeared many years before in the stomach of a whale, who's stomach contents she had gone to investigate (not a very appealing experiment, if you ask me). Nim and Jack live an idyllic existence on their island, their main communication with civilization being email through Jack's solar powered computer. Her friends are Fred, a marine iguana, and Silkie, a sea lion. All is well until Jack goes on an expedition to study plankton, and gets lost in a storm.
