Publisher's Summary

Ella's mum is in a deep coma, having just had a new baby. That means Ella has to live with Jack, her hopeless stepfather, and cope with her tiny newborn brother, as well as worrying about Mum.
The only thing that's going right is her school project. It's all about whales and how they sing out to each other to attract a mate - sometimes for hours. Maybe a whale song could reach Mum, wherever she is, and bring her back to Ella and baby Samson. Surely it's worth a try?


What the Critics Say

"Wilson's clear, honest writing crackles through this moving tale ... This absorbing novel packs an emotional punch which should satisfy Wilson's many fans, old and new." ( Booktrust) "This story will delight ... As always, the characters are beautifully portrayed and you are really drawn into their lives, especially that of Ella" (Parents In Touch) "With its honest characters and dialogue, its unique coverage of the trauma Ella and her family experience, and its ability to unite readers with Ella's coping process is a tender, moving story in the classic Wilson mould." ( Inis)
