This book is an excellent choice for more reluctant readers. It is written for any age, comprehensible even for an eight year old, yet complex enough that an eighteen year old would enjoy it. The author does a beautiful job of using descriptive words, allowing the reader to be transported into the story. It is written such that one would easily believe that this story is true. Appropriately, the climax is slightly emotional and urges the reader to love dogs more than before. Any dog lover will adore this book. I highly recommend it.
