Die zwölfjährige Caitlin lebt allein mit ihrer Mutter in einem Vorort von Seattle. Jeden Tag geht sie nach der Schule ins öffentliche Großaquarium und wartet dort, bis ihre Mutter sie abends nach der Arbeit abholt. Sie ist fasziniert von den stummen, bunten Wesen hinter dem Glas und geht ganz in der rätselhaften Unterwasserwelt auf. Eines Tages trifft sie im Aquarium einen älteren Mann, der die Fische ebenso zu lieben scheint wie sie selbst. Sie freundet sich mit ihm an – und öffnet damit nichtsahnend die Tür zur Vergangenheit ihrer Mutter. Eine Tür, die diese verzweifelt wieder zu schließen versucht, und sei es mit drastischen Mitteln. David Vanns neuer Roman trifft. Und ist zugleich sein erstes zutiefst versöhnliches Buch – über ein Mädchen, dessen Bedürfnis danach, geliebt zu werden, alles verändert, und ein Buch darüber, dass in der Familie so etwas wie Vergebung möglich ist. Und ein Neuanfang. Ein ganz und gar außergewöhnlicher Roman.

The mysterious world beneath the ocean’s surface and its inhabitants have captivated humanity for centuries—the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, and ancient Chinese all kept fish in their homes to observe and admire. But it was not until the nineteenth-century invention of the aquarium that the deep was truly domesticated, offering the curious a chance to create an indoor exotic sea world, in miniature. In The Ocean at Home, Bernd Brunner traces the development of the aquarium from the Victorian era to the present day. Along the way, in this fascinating history, Brunner provides insight into the cultural and social circumstances that accompanied the aquarium’s swift rise in popularity. Brunner tells a compelling story of obsession, discovery, and delight—from the aquarium’s origin as a tool for scientific observation to the Victorian era’s elaborately decorated containers of curiosity, to the great public aquariums that are popular in cities around the world today. Featuring more than 100 illustrations, this updated edition of The Ocean at Home offers a colorful and captivating look at how a Victorian obsession still enchants many today. Both the owner of a humble goldfish bowl and the dazzled spectator at major public aquariums will find The Ocean at Home an appealing and knowledgable guide to the aquatic worlds we create.

Pedro is a seven year old boy who has been diagnosed with having autism. At times, Pedro's disorder makes him become silly and emotional. When Pedro becomes emotional, it is difficult for adults to calm him down. When deciding to take him on various outings Pedro's parents are sometimes embarrassed by his behavior. Therefore, they are afraid to send him with the class on a field trip to the aquarium. Rasheedah Saleem-Muhammad currently serves as a Special Educator in New Jersey. She has an Associate Degree in Liberal Arts, a Bachelor of Art Degree in Political Science, a Masters Degree in Special Education and a PhD candidate. She has always been in favor of education.
