"Each year, highly endangered young sea turtles wash up frozen on the beaches of Cape Cod, thousands of miles from their nesting ground. The massive effort to rehabilitate and relocate them has resulted in beach walkers, local organizations, and a large aquarium all pulling together to save the planet's rarest breed of sea turtle, the Kemp's ridley. When one of earth's rarest sea turtles washes up on the shores of Cape Cod, only one special child is sure it can be saved. Based on the extensive national effort to preserve the last of the Kemp's ridley turtles, Every Turtle Counts is the touching story of Mimi, a seven-year-old whose challenges, like the turtle's, are many but whose determination is undaunted."--Publisher's website.
