What if you could speak to a dolphin? Twelve year old Lucy Parr has dreamt of dolphins all her life. One evening she overhears her Aunt Bethany telling her Dad that Lucy has a special gift. What is it and why was her dad so opposed to her love of the dolphins and the sea? Could it be something to do with her mother?

Not long after Lucy is amazed to discover that the dolphins she dreams about are real, and that she can reach out with her mind and actually speak to a young dolphin called Spirit. Longing to escape her father’s strict but absent upbringing and to find out who she really is, Lucy decides to run away to visit Bethany in Cornwall.

When Spirit’s pod off the Cornish coast learn of his special connection with Lucy, the leader of the pod called Storm forbids him from taking his coming-of-age swim. Spirit is determined to prove himself though and escapes anyway to take this right of passage and earn the respect of the pod.

When Spirit is disorientated by a jet-ski rider, he becomes trapped in the coils of a discarded steel rope. Can Lucy find a way to save Spirit before it was too late?
