Audience: 3rd Grade - 6th Grade
Eleven-year-old Poppy Ray is spending the summer with her Uncle Sanjay on a small island off the state of Washington. She wants to be a veterinarian just like him. Poppy learns that the job is not always pleasant and happy. It can be a very messy job working with animals, and dealing with strange pet owners takes a lot of patience. An island psychic suggests she find a piece of sea glass for meditation and it will help her find her inner strength. Poppy experiences everything from the birth of new puppies to the death of a well-loved cat. Is it the glass or the people on the island she encounters that brings about the change within her?
