Seaglass Summer by Anjali Banerjee

Publisher:  Wendy Lamb Books
Pages:  176
Source:  Library

Eleven year old Poppy Ray decides she's not going to India with her parents this year.  She wants to spend the summer with her veterinarian uncle Sanjay.  Poppy wants to be a veterinarian.  Once on the island with her uncle, she learns all about her uncle's job the good, the bad, and the ugly truth.  This book is very realistic and one any animal lover will enjoy.  The story talks of reaching for your dream when family doesn't agree due to a difference in cultures.  I enjoyed this book very much.
