A powerful novel with Sally Grindley's hallmark theme-driven narrative. In Saving Finnegan it is the important yet often taboo theme of death that is at the forefront and yet she has created an utterly gripping and hugely enjoyable novel.

Synopsis

Saving Finnegan by Sally Grindley

When Finola wakes up and sees the whale on the beach, she can hardly believe her eyes. Soon, she is at the forefront of an island-wide movement to save the whale. But things are not as simple as the young girl would like and she has to deal with the ambitions of a wide group of people. This work is laced with the important theme of death.
