Publisher Comments:

Nicki Fleming is a 10-year-old girl who is a natural with animals. She lives on a working Colorado ranch with her parents and younger brother. She is optimistic, generous, and compassionate, and she loves skiing almost as much as she loves animals.

Nicki has a hard time saying no to people. Whenever anyone asks for her help, she's ready to lend a hand. When Nicki says yes to becoming the main trainer of a service dog that she and her mother had planned to train together, Nicki ends up in over her head, and struggles to juggle multiple responsibilities: to her parents, her best friend, her teacher--and to the dog.

But in the process of training the lively and spirited Sprocket, Nicki's affection for him grows--even while she keeps reminding herself that she has to give him up to someone who needs him more than she does. Equally important, Nicki learns some important lessons for herself.

Book One ends with the with big test--and success --of Sprocket's potential as a service dog, and Nicki's deep pride in their joint accomplishment.

Synopsis:

Girls will love meeting Nicki, the Girl of the Year 2007! Nicki Fleming is a natural with animals. When the chance to train a service dog comes up, she just can't say "no," even if it means taking on more responsibility and having to give up some of the things she loves doing. When Sprocket the puppy turns out to be a handful, Nicki has to muster all of her compassion to continue his training. She knows that one day Sprocket will make someone else's life better--and that makes all the difference., The "True Story" section at the back of the book focuses on real girls who have experience training service dogs.Girls will love meeting Nicki, the Girl of the Year 2007!

I love all american girls, and have heard this is an excellent book. Girls will love her outifits and acessories. There also is expected to be a second book that comes after the book "nicki". It looks very good.

I can't wait for this book to come out. My daughter is an American Girl fan, and she likes characters who like dogs! This seems like the ideal story and doll for her.
