The most fascinating thing about this review is that I wasn’t familiar with Blue 52 (the “world’s loneliest whale”) when writing Weird Fishes, but that is DEFINITELY him in that scene. Still marveling at how this story-telling thing works…

Mariz’s prose is beautiful and evokes a true feeling of wonder and connectedness to the ocean. Clever twists on common turns of phrase remind you that the main characters aren’t human, and the interplay of the many different species of the ocean gives hints at the biodiversity teeming below the surface. There’s even a cameo by 52 Blue, the “world’s loneliest whale.”
