Whalesinger by Welwyn Wilton Katz

Hurt and angry after his brother’s tragic death, 17-year-old Nick escapes the pressures of his family in Vancouver by working as a research assistant for a conservation group on the beautiful Point Reyes coastline of California. There he meets Marty, and, to his surprise, finds himself drawn to her quiet, intense manner. Shy and intuitive, Marty discovers that she is able to communicate with a mother gray whale forced to summer nearby with her sick calf. When Nick and Marty learn that the conservation project is a front for a scheme to plunder the treasure of Sir Francis Drake’s sunken frigate, a tense confrontation occurs. Love, anger, hatred, and forgiveness fill this many-layered, deeply felt novel as it builds toward an unforgettable climax.
