Book Intro

Whales love singing.
They sing at different frequencies.
There was this whale that sings at an unusually higher frequency, and cannot be heard by other whales.
She has been described as the “world’s loneliest whale”.
She is known as the 52-hertz whale.
She is Alice.
“Why can’t any other whales hear me sing?”
This was Alice’s biggest challenge.
Until the day she met Grandpa Ted and Arien, that told her they can help tune her to sing like other whales.
Should she trust them and do it? She wasn’t sure.
No harm trying, she thought. Only then will she be more certain of what matters most.
Is it okay to be different? Or should we try our best to be like everyone else?
Let's see, as we journey together with Alice.
