I found the story really interesting. It flowed well and kept me turning the pages. The thing that put me off though was the missing words. I had to stop and work out what word should have been there.
One thing I most definitely do not agree with is the bit near the end about the dolphins and his comment about the whale in free willy.
They are wild animals not circus performers. And what ever they learned was rewarded by food. That's why the dolphins stayed, because they didn't know how to find food themselves. Willy would not have chosen to be put in a small pool and taught tricks, he would have chosen the sea and to be able to eat, find a mate and to live free. In his book, Matt spoke of the freedom he felt while riding his bike. Dolphins and whales should have the right to feel that freedom too.
