Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this companion to her acclaimed 2005 novel, A Dogs Life, Ann M. Martin tells the parallel stories of a stray dog (the brother of the dog featured in A Dogs Life), a boy dealing with unspeakable loss, and a boy whose most ardent wish is to own a dog—and everything for a dog.

Bone and his sister, Squirrel, are stray dogs born in a shed. Left motherless as puppies, the two dogs survive together for a while, but are soon wrenched apart. Bone doesnt know if his sister is still alive, and must now go on, alone.

Charlie is a boy who has suffered a terrible loss. And, as hes healing with the help of his dog, another tragedy occurs.

Henrys best friend has moved away. All Henry has wanted is a dog of his own. But his parents wont let him.

Bone, Charlie, and Henry live very different lives, but they are fated to intersect in surprising ways. Award-winning author Ann M. Martin has written a powerful, heartfelt novel thats perfect for anyone who has ever longed for a dog, or loved one.

Synopsis:

In this companion to her acclaimed 2005 novel, A Dogs Life, Ann M. Martin tells the parallel stories of a stray dog (the brother of the dog featured in A Dogs Life), a boy dealing with unspeakable loss, and a boy whose most ardent wish is to own a dog—and everything for a dog.

Synopsis:

Bone is a stray dog, all alone in the world, looking for a safe place to call home. Charlie is devastated by the death of his older brother, but at least he has his brothers dog to comfort him.  All Henry wants is a dog of his own, and even when his best friend moves away, his parents still wont let him have one. Bone, Charlie, and Henry dont know each other, but their lives are about to connect in a very surprising way. Because dogs, and dog lovers, have a way of finding each other . . .
