Shark Bait!

by Jeff Szpirglas & Danielle Saint-Onge, illustrated by Dave Whamond

tagged: marine life, computers, environment
Description

Shark-obsessed Orly spends every summer with her family on the coast.

This year her parents have signed her up for sailing lessons, hoping to teach her some water safety while they're busy with her baby brother. Orly is excited to be on the water, but she has other ideas about how she’s going to spend her time there: rather than learning to tie knots and batten down the hatches, she's going to use her tablet to track Delta, a great white shark known to frequent the area. Orly’s misplaced enthusiasm repeatedly gets her in hot water with her instructor. Can Orly redeem herself with her sailing crew when she has a chance to use her shark-tracking skills to save some actual wildlife in danger?
