Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Nine-year-old Harriet resides with her father on a fishing boat, situated off the lush and tropical shores of Australia, in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. Growing up at sea, Harriet is as comfortable in water as she is on land, and spends her time exploring the vast reef systems teeming with exotic plants and animals. All is well in the land of lavender corals and tangerine sunsets until an oil spill destroys all that Harriet has come to love. Blackness covers the once pristine beaches, as fish, sea birds, and turtles sicken in the thick grease. Harriet witnesses the devastating effects on wildlife and is inconsolable. Determined to save her home, Harriet departs on a thrilling underwater adventure that is both empowering and touching. Harriet manages to save the day in her own very special and innocent way.
