Turtle GirlBook - 2008
"I will always be with you, Magdalena, especially at turtle-time." Magdalena and her grandmother are on a turtle watch, looking for sea turtles. The night does not disappoint. As turtles float ashore to dig their nests and lay their eggs in the moonlight, the sight is a wonder to behold. Magdalena's grandmother has instilled in her grandchild a love of sea turtles. She promises Magdalena that she will always be with her at turtle time. But when her grandmother dies, Magdalena feels hurt andbetrayed. She doesn't care what happens to the hatchlings that are beginning to emerge from their shells on the beach. Then, in the distance, she hears the cry of a hungry gull. A deeply felt story of memory and the enduring power of love.
