The back cover starts out, "Whales were dying mysteriously". SOLD! Whales are magic. Save the whales.
Also, that horrible mustachioed hero's name is Jake.
Would anyone be interested in a review? This book has some similarities to Animorphs, to the point that it almost reads as Rachel/Marco AU fic. Or Cassie/Marco. Or Cassie/Tobias.
The other book, First and Forever, hasn't arrived yet and I have no idea what it's about. Here's hoping it's another practice Animorphs book!
