Additional copies are available for checkout at BPL and on the Libby app.

Book Summary: 

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 Iris learns about Blue 55, a real whale who is unable to speak to other whales, she 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? 

Full of heart and poignancy, this affecting story by sign language interpreter Lynne Kelly shows how a little determination can make big waves!
