    1. When Uki, a Japanese teenage girl, is found guilty of hacking and stealing a computer file, she is given an unusual sentence. Rather than being sent to juvenile prison, she is sentenced to go on a concert tour across the universe with a whale and a dolphin in their spaceship the Antarctic Dancer. Initially there is tension, but slowly a bond forms between the trio. Uki even joins the show with her own performances.The whale’s tale is a lovely story that is a right-of-passage for a teenage girl [...]

    2. I really enjoyed reading this futuristic book. I thought the personalities of the three main characters, the whale Targe, the dolphin, Charlie and Uki the rebellious teenage Japanese girl, were all well written, and it was a great action-packed story.

    3. A sweet little book about a whale choir in a spaceship and the teenaged girl who is sentenced to join them."A Whale's Tale" is more a middle grade tale, for pre-teen readers who might like a longer work. (It's not quite YA-aged thematically, even though it is quite complex to read. It's good for say, a 9-11 year old who may not be ready for the reality and grittiness of YA.

    4. I found the characters engaging and believable. The teen human was well portrayed and you could really get into her rebellion especially when juxtaposed with the two completely different characers of the dolphin and the whale. I would like to see this as the start of series as I am totally emersed in the universe presented. The clarity of style appeals to all ages, I feel.

    5. The Whale's Tale is a fun, immersive story. Edwina Harvey's tale of spaceflight, whalesong, and teenage rebellion has some great interplay between the three main characters (only one of whom has feet) and a good sense of pace.
