Publisher Comments:

Half of me was thinking, Georgina, dont do this. Stealing a dog is just plain wrong. The other half of me was thinking, Georgina, youre in a bad fix and you got to do whatever it takes to get yourself out of it.

Georgina Hayes is desperate. Ever since her father left and they were evicted from their apartment, her family has been living in their car. With her mama juggling two jobs and trying to make enough money to find a place to live, Georgina is stuck looking after her younger brother, Toby. And she has her heart set on improving their situation. When Georgina spots a missing-dog poster with a reward of five hundred dollars, the solution to all her problems suddenly seems within reach. All she has to do is “borrow” the right dog and its owners are sure to offer a reward. What happens next is the last thing she expected.

 
How to Steal a Dog is a 2008 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

Synopsis:

Desperate to hold her struggling family together, Georgina Hayes is inspired after she spots a poster offering a $500 reward for the return of a missing dog. All she has to do is "borrow" the right dog and its owners are sure to offer a reward.

Synopsis:

Georgina Hayes may be homeless, but shes not hopeless.

This book shows that people will go and try to do anything to save people they love. That when people are desperate enough, they will go to those standards. That people whose lives have been ruined that they can forgive those who have hurt them, then help them.
