"I would describe this book as a beautiful piece of fiction that reads like a memoir. I've never read a book quite like this..it's very unique. It's about tragedy, understanding, coming-of-age, acceptance and forgiveness...This is, hands down, one of my top five favorite books. It's beautifully written, gorgeous detail, a unique story line and is fast-paced enough that we keep turning the pages but not so much so that it loses the reader. It touches on important issues, like bullying, abuse and losing a parent, in a way that's informative but not overwhelming. What I really loved is how it shone the light on the Native culture and spirituality in such a beautiful way...This is a must-read. It's categorized as a YA novel but it's a good and important read for everyone." --Chynna T. Laird, author of Blackbird Flies
"Whale Song is a beautifully written story of love. Tardif's gift with language and empathy towards cultures lent this book an authenticity which had me searching to see if it was based on a true story. The best book I have read in a while and one of my first ebooks, so now it is stored on my Kindle to savour again another day." -- Melissa Clarke
"Whale Song is full of colorful images and descriptive passages. Cheryl Tardiff brings her characters alive with words. The reader is thrown into the lives of the characters and shares their emotions. I would recommend this book to anyone. Read it. You will enjoy it. I promise." -- Susan Schmelzer
"I was so captivated by this story, I downloaded The River, Divine Intervention and Remote Control. Cheryl has a great gift in keeping you up at night and wanting to get to the end of the page, then the end of the chapter. I am hooked on her books." --Rawhideranch, Amazon reviewer
"It was a really moving story about love and family and coming of age. If you love whales and a heartwarming story, this book is for you." --Pam Lowe, Amazon reviewer
