Lolly loves sailing and decides to head out on a late afternoon sail all on her own.  She leaves a note for her mother sets out for a peaceful sail.  It is as wonderful as she had hoped until the accident happens.  The boat capsizes and Lolly is injured and in the water alone with no one to help her.  She tries not to panic but as time goes by, she worries that she might not make it out of this situation.  She can't get on the boat so must stay in the water as the sun goes down.  And now there is a bump against her leg!  Is it a shark?  Will it hurt much when it clamps down on her leg? It turns out that it is a manatee that is pushing her.  Will it save her?  Is it even aware of her?
