All sea turtles are threatened or endangered. The Kemp’s ridley turtles are the most endangered of all—fewer than eight thousand on the whole planet. Limp and frozen, a Kemp’s ridley washes up on Cape Cod. When a boy named Max finds him, the turtle appears to be dead. But maybe not. Award-winning author Kathryn Lasky and photographer Christopher G. Knight take young readers on a riveting tour that begins on the icy shores of Cape Cod, where expert teams attempt to revive the Kemp’s ridley, and ends on the warm beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, where this rare breed is born and may return to lay eggs of its own.
