Summary
"In Bogot Colombia a twenty-one-foot-long, nineteen-year-old North Atlantic-caught killer whale swam around and around. His small, warm, cloudy pool was the precious jewel in the crown of a theme park long past its glory days. Because he always swam in a counterclockwise direction, the centrifugal force may or may not have caused the fallen dorsal fin that curled tightly over his back. He was called Viernes--Friday--but he'd been given that name years and years ago and no one still connected with the park knew why. It's been three years since Hannah the elephant departed the Max L. Biedelman Zoo, and life is quietly chugging along for her friends in Bladenham, WA: Sam has retired; Neva owns a doggie daycare called Woof!; Harriet Saul has been fired and in her absence Truman Levy has taken over as executive director of the zoo. And then Truman's aunt, an eccentric millionaire looking for a pet project, finds just the thing: a killer whale stranded in Colombia who desperately needs a new home. With the help of aquatic animal expert Gabriel Jump, she strongarms Truman into repurposing the Zoo's never-used porpoise tank for Friday's rehabilitation. Under Gabriel's watchful eye, and with a team of enthusiastic amateur helpers, Friday begins to revive. But not everyone believes that Friday should remain in captivity. And before Truman knows what to do about it, the Max L. Biedelman Zoo is under national scrutinty -- and controversy -- and Friday's fate may no longer remain in just their hands"--
