About the Book

Saving Truman is the story of a sea turtle’s struggle to survive an injury caused by human impact. By his side is an 8-year-old boy named Luca, who earlier rescued the turtle from peril and later became this lucky turtle’s hero. Luca’s dedication to the rehabilitation of this 150-pound turtle evolves into a commitment to save this endangered species from extinction. Luca discovers that these lovable ancient mariners will struggle to survive without human kindness and intervention. Saving Truman shares an emotional journey of this sea turtle’s rescue, rehabilitation and his inspiring, heartfelt release.
