Island of the Blue Dolphins

12-year-old Karana's peaceful island is usually only interrupted by typical family problems — like her little brother, Ramo, getting into trouble. But after a brutal attack by Russian and Aleut fur hunters that leaves many of the hunters dead, the rest of her Nicoleño people plan to leave the island. When Ramo leaves to find his fishing spear, and the ship plans to leave without him, Karana leaps off to join him... and when Ramo is killed by wild dogs, she finds herself stranded alone.

To survive, Karana must take on traditionally masculine tasks, like hunting and fishing, and also find companions to keep her company through the years of solitude. This Newbery Medal-winning novel is now available in a 50th anniversary edition with a new introduction by Lois Lowry.
