Trina Bell's Humming Summer by Silke Stein is an amazing coming of age story. The characters are realistic and Trina's pain over her father's "neglect" and her unusual ability allowed her to quickly find a place in my heart. The imagery that Silke Stein uses is amazing and when the whale watching scene was described, I felt like I was in the boat with Trina and her father. The plot is VERY unique and quickly drew me in. I had a hard time putting it down.
