Island of the Blue Dolphins One of the first things Julie and Karana have in common is their authors have both earned a Newbery Medal. This story of survival of a Native American girl is similar in many ways to Julie of the Wolves, except you might not get quite as cold reading it. Both girls are brave heroines who overcome obstacles and survive on traditional knowledge. This novel would make a fantastic compare/contrast essay topic.
