Have you ever read a book and wished it was your story? The Summer of Cecily is that kind of book. Magically, Nan Lincoln makes her six-week adventure raising an abandoned seal pup feel like your story, too. With humor, compassion and an incredible gift for storytelling, she takes the reader on a journey, from the first life-and-death struggle to get the starving pup to feed, to the unexpected dilemma of what to do with a baby seal who adapts so well to a life with humans. Car and wheelbarrow rides, gardening, television watching, and living in a log house; the growing seal begins to think she is human, too. It is up to her new mother to teach the pup how to be a seal again and how to live in the ocean, to swim, eat fish, and socialize with other seals. The reader will learn, along with Cecily, what it takes to be a harbor seal. The Summer of Cecily is a heart-warming and inspiring true tale about the meeting of a creature of the land and a creature of the sea, of falling in love and, ultimately, having to say good-bye. It is also the story of a very special place, where an ordinary day can turn into an extraordinary adventure. This first complete portrait of the artist behind the legendary dresses is published to coincide with the first museum retrospective of designs by this American fashion icon. It's all right, baby, I said softly, bending close to the dark, round head, which lay in the crook of my arm. We're going to take care of you now. Whoop! Whoop! the pup responded. On a cold rainy spring day in Maine, Nan Lincoln awakens to life as usual on rural Mount Desert Island: a home to care for, a garden to tend, a family to love. But by day's end, her world will be turned upside down. A baby harbor seal has been abandoned on the rocks. The tide is coming in, and the seal's mother is nowhere to be seen. The Lincolns must make a decision: Step in and save the pup, or let nature take its course. With humor and compassion, Nan Lincoln takes the reader on an incredible journey, from the first life-and-death struggle to get the starving pup to feed, to the unexpected dilemma of what to do with a baby seal who adapts so well to a life with humans. Car and wheelbarrow rides, gardening, television watching, and living in a log house -- we realize along with the Lincolns that their growing seal has begun to think she is human, too. They will have the pup for only six weeks, and it is up to Cecily's new mother to teach her how to be a seal again and how to live in the ocean -- to swim, eat fish, and socialize with others of her kind. The Summer of Cecily is a heartwarming and inspiring true tale about a meeting between a creature of the land and a creature of the sea, about falling in love and, ultimately, having to say good-bye. It is also the story of a very special place, Mount Desert Island, Maine. Nan Lincoln's compelling descriptions and fascinating historical references fire the imagination. She brings alive the Island's special enchantment, where an ordinary day can turn into an extraordinary adventure. Nan Lincoln still lives on Mount Desert Island where she is the arts editor, a feature writer, and reporter for the Bar Harbor Times. She has also written articles for Reader's Digest, Down East, Yankee, and other nationally distributed magazines, and most recently for Chicken Soup for the Soul. She is a winner of the Bob Drake award for journalism from the Maine Press Association and numerous other state, New England, and national awards for her writing. When she is not writing she is singing with the Maine Women's Balkan Choir, which performs concerts throughout the state. Among her other favorite pastimes these days is walking with her dog Amos, a border collie, lab mix who, curiously enough, looks very much like a seal. Sam White is an artist and poet. A graduate of Colby College and the Iowa Writers' Workshop, he is currently working on a graphic novel. He lives in Providence, RI. Steven Katona, Ph.D., is President of College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, Maine, and founder of the college's marine mammal research group, Allied Whale. In addition to research on the ecology, distribution, and abundance of humpback and finback whales, Allied Whale staff work under permit from the National Marine Fisheries Service to assist or salvage stranded whales, dolphins, and seals.

You're on a beach- the tide is coming in- you see an abandoned seal pup halfway under a rock. What would you do? When Nan Lincoln sees the pup on the beach in the early summer of 1976 she feels like she should adopt it, six hours later she decided to and she did. She named the pup Cecily. She keeps Cecily for the summer and finds ways to make her life as similar as it would be to the life of other pups. Cecily has an attitude that is expressed by Nan (in English not seal language) and is very funny to read about. In the first chapter however Nan mostly writes about the setting and her family which is also explained in chapter 2. Soon the book heats up and she finds Cecily and you are brought along on the ride of your life as you go through the summer with Cecily, Nan, and Nan's family. Each chapter brings a new laugh to the scene.
Nan has a unique writing style that is very descriptive and specific. She has written a very unique book that would be perfect for a 4th Grade read-aloud or an independent reading book for other grades as well as 4th Grade. Her writing style is also sometimes straying to short sub-topics of the story to help you understand other parts of the story. All in all I would give this book 5 star rating.

Nan Lincoln's story of the summer she spent raising (with the permission of the authorities) an abandoned seal pup is the most endearing story I think I've ever read. Her tale of her struggles to get it to eat, swimming with it, riding around with a seal in the car, carting Cecily to the shore in a wheel barrow, then, finally, successfully integrating it back into nature is destined to be a classic. Ms. Lincoln has a wonderfully readable prose style and the story is absolutely unique. I can't imagine anyone not being delighted with it. A friend called it "a little jewel."
This is not a children's book, although it contains both photographs and sketches of her amazing experience and will be enjoyed by all ages. The youngest children won't be interested in her bits of history about Mount Desert Island, I suspect. Mom or Dad can skip those parts when reading out loud.
This should be a movie. Where's Michael Eisner when we need him
Clever
This is a wonderfull book,, would make a very good school report, a must for all teenagers

Nan Lincoln's real-life story of finding a young seal is both heart-warming and informative; interspersing a history and background of Mount Desert Island amongst the story of Cecily. A very intersting and all-around wonderful book.
