Summary

A touching story from the #1 New York Times bestselling authors of Owen & Mzee, now in paperback!

When Winter, an Atlantic bottlenose dolphin, was three months old, she was rescued from a crab trap off the east coast of Florida, her tail seriously damaged. She was rushed to Clearwater Marine Aquarium, where she was cared for by a special team around the clock. Winter survived, though eventually her tail fell off, which made it difficult for her to swim like a normal dolphin and caused serious damage to her spine. Then something amazing happened. A team of experts from a renowned company that makes prosthetics for humans heard about Winter and decided to help. Now Winter is using a prosthetic tail with great command.
