Review: Grayson



Grayson by Lynne Cox

When Cox was 17, she was swimming in the Pacific one day when she happened upon a baby gray whale that had been separated from the herd, and in particular, his mother. In this short, "feel good" novella, Cox chronicles her experience in the water that day in trying to return Grayson (the whale) to his herd.

This is a short, pleasant story, though as someone who has a fear of all the creatures who live in the depths of the ocean, perhaps not a good one for me. Too much discussion of scary fish, jellyfish and things with teeth. Ish.

This book has been getting a LOT of publicity and promotion, and while pleasant, I'm not sure I would have pushed it so heavily as a publisher. But that's just me...
