Island of the Blue Dolphins

This book is the ultimate girl's survival story! Karana is a young Nicoleno tribe member, who lives in solitude after having been left on the island accidentally by her family. She is the heroine; she hunts to survive, burns the fat of fish for light, and tames animals for companionship. Karana's story is a real story, girls! May we all have the courage, intensity, and canoe building skills as she! (Skip the movie, please-- its not the same). Recommended by Jenna.
