Things aren't much better for her at school where she feels confined by cliques and social mores. A kindred spirit of dolphins, Jane longs for open waters. When she falls for Sam, a sweet guy who's "off limits" because he's from a different "pod," Jane seeks the courage to remove the constraints in her life that hold her back.The characters are true to life and richly drawn. I especially loved the interwoven story of Jane's brother John and his wife Desiree, which shows how life can get messy and still be good.Dolphin Girl is a tale of freedom, family, friendship, and love. A thoroughly enjoyable read! 7 of 7 people found the following review helpful Great Young Adult Story!!, January 10, 2012 By Mag16 This review is from: Dolphin Girl (Kindle Edition) Ever since a childhood experience Jane has loved dolphins. She understands them. Jane longs to be free, like dolphins.Jane's life was a fascinating tale. Her mother was a very controlling person, to an OCD point, I thought. Her father seemed indifferent to what was going on with his family. Her brother, John, was moving on with his life with Desiree.In school, everyone stayed grouped together in pods. They socialized within their pods, stayed in one location during free time, and there wasn't intermingling between pods to a great extent.Suddenly Jane finds herself becoming friends with someone from a different pod. A boy named Sam that she finds attractive. They spend lunch together, and began to enjoy each others' company. Jane starts to fall in love.Things don't go easily for Jane. Being grounded, a horrible date, losing Sam to her ex-best friend, dealing with her mother's constant controlling, and running away from home... 6 of 6 people found the following review helpful I wanna be in Jane's and Sam's pod!!! <3, October 7, 2011 By Kerry O'Malley Cerra "WRN? girl" (South Florida, USA) This review is from: Dolphin Girl (Kindle Edition) I cannot gush about this book enough. Dolphin Girl, A.K.A. Jane, is a main character most of us can relate to. It totally stinks that the cliques in HS are so confining, right? Feeling trapped by the pods at school and her mother's rules at home, Jane longs for freedom. So, when hottie Sam Rojas who, despite being in the trophy case crowd, takes an interest in Jane, a member of the water fountain clan, she starts thinking maybe things can change. And that royally peeves ex-BFF/now trophy caser/I-want-Sam-all-to-myself Alana.The daisy (he loves me, he loves me not) romance of Sam and Jane had my heart all aflutter during their lunches. And I was totally crushed right along with Jane at the Snow Ball when things went south. Pile on Mom's pressure at home and Jane is truly suffocating under the surface of deceptively calm ocean.With the help of a hilarious inter-pod scavenger hunt, a few burned casseroles, and a new arrival in the family, Jane finally breaks...
