The story of a deaf girl’s connection to a whale whose
song can’t be heard by his species, and the journey she
takes to help him. From fixing the class computer to
repairing old radios, twelve-year-old Iris is a tech
genius. But she’s the only deaf person in her school, so
people often treat her like she’s not very smart. If
you’ve ever felt like no one was listening to you, then
you know how hard that can be. When she learns about
Blue 55, a real whale who is unable to speak to other
whales, Iris understands how he must feel. Then she
has an idea: she should invent a way to “sing” to him!
But he’s three thousand miles away. How will she play
her song for him?
