Book Excerpt:

 

A dark animal
circled slowly in the shallow water of Manatee Key. Walking closer, Bella
whispered. “A baby manatee. And it has a patch of white near its snout.” Britt
frowned. “But where’s the mother? It must be hungry. We should tell the
ranger.”
“Yeah,”
Bella said. “This one’s too young to be without her mom. Let’s go.”
The
friends worked their way through the jungle-like brush back to their bicycles.
Britt took the lead. “It’s really hot, but we gotta make time.” 
After a
twenty minute ride down dusty paths leading to the main road in their coastal
town, they reached the ranger station. “It’s quiet in here today,” Bella said.
 The ranger’s assistant glanced up from his
reading. “Hi, girls. Can I help you?”
“We need
to see the ranger and report an orphaned manatee,” Bella said.
He
frowned. “She hasn’t come in today, and that’s not like her. I’ve called her
phones. Nobody answered. And no one’s seen her. Have you by any chance?”
“No,” they
answered at the same time.
 “Well, it’s a mystery,” he said. “I won’t call
the police yet. But I’m getting worried. Now, about that manatee. Can you take
me to it?”
 “Sure,” Britt said. “If you can bring us back
to town. We rode our bikes here.” He nodded. “Of course.”
