Author Mary Alice Monroe discusses her new novel 'The Summer Girls'

For the past four years, Mary Alice Monroe has lived her life alongside the Atlantic bottlenose dolphin. The best-selling author volunteered at the Dolphin Research Center in the Florida Keys and with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in Charleston. She helped researchers identify dolphins and facilitate a program that allowed children with special needs to interact with the animals. She saw their intelligence, their family bonds -- but she also saw how they're hurting.
