She is able to spend real time with Spirit who, like her, is learning to overcome the loss of his own mother.
Observed one morning by a strange boy while Lucy swims with dolphins, she spots him later the same day being bullied by a group of local kids. When Paul tells Lucy he knows about a dolphin trapped in a secret lagoon, she doesn’t know whether to believe him, but her recurring dream of lonely dolphin trapped in murky waters troubles her.
When Lucy discovers the disturbing story of an eighteen-century Dolphin Child called Susan Penhaligon, Lucy begins to understand why Paul’s mother is so unfriendly to her.

Lucy and Paul become joined in their quest to save the lone dolphin in the lagoon. Will Paul’s desire to escape the local bullies and to become a Dolphin Child too lead to a tragic repetition of Susan Penhaligon’s fate? What is the link between the trapped dolphin and Spirit?
