In this, the fourth and last in the series of Agnes Pflumm science education novels, our heroine joins battle with her fiercest foe ever. No science fair project, hurricane, or sewage spill could even come close.
The future of our ocean planet is at stake, and Agnes is only a child. (Or is she?) All she knows is that she is part of a dance between light and dark, hope and despair, and that somehow, SEVEN ancient pictographs hold the answers.
Agnes, Edward, and Lydia sign on as volunteer crew on The Quest, a pilot schooner in route from Periwinkle Island, SC, to the Caribbean Sea – to a place called Boriken. A young North Atlantic Right Whale named Lafta accompanies them. They have no idea what they’re questing for!
