Synopses & Reviews
You can't judge a dog by its cover: The heroic story of a sweet, loyal pit bull pup that defies expectations and her breed's reputation to save the day--and the boy she loves!
11-year-old Mackenzie has got one friend in the whole world: Cash, his brown-eyed pit bull. His dad won the runt after a long night of gambling--ever since Mack's mom died, that's all he seems to do, and soon he erupts in a rage at the innocent pup, takes her away in the trunk of his car, and dumps her in the middle of nowhere. Mack vows to find Cash and bring her back home--he has to! All strays are about to be outlawed and put down. Little does Mack know that while he searches for Cash, she's surviving her own adventures and proving in the process that all dogs--even pit bulls--are born good
"DOG LOST is much more than a breathless page-turner. It's a brutally honest novel depicting the world of dogfighting in a wicked light but tempering any scenes of cruelty with an entire community of positive characters. And Lee brings together her winning, motley cast, human and animal, for a wonderfully heart-rousing ending. I loved it."--Ann M. Martin, author of A DOG'S LIFE
"A tough book, a tender book, and one I shan't forget." — Michael Morpurgo, author of WAR HORSE and PRIVATE PEACEFUL
"Without moralizing, [Lee] argues that dogs, regardless of breed, can be trained to be violent--or not....Based on a true story, this moving, fast-paced tale will appeal to fans of SHILOH." — Kirkus Reviews
Lee presents the heroic story of a sweet, loyal pit bull pup that defies expectations and her breed's reputation to save the day--and the boy she loves. Based on a true story, this moving, fast-paced tale will appeal to fans of "Shiloh.--Kirkus Reviews."
