Ali spends hours at her "secret place" observing the manatees. With the help of her friend, Einstein, and her teacher, Mrs. Fields, Ali learns all about manatees. Then one day something terrible happens to shatter Ali's secret world! Find out how Ali uses her knowledge about manatees to save the day.
