Tallulah Fallsby Christine Fletcher
Synopses & Reviews
When Tallulah Addy sets out on an impulsive cross-country trip to rescue her best friend, she doesn't anticipate getting stranded in rural Tennessee without a dime. Nor does she guess that rescuing a dog will land her a job in the local veterinarian's office. But there, under the wary eye of ornery Dr. Poteet, Tallulah works harder than ever before, tending to animals of all shapes and sizes--and unexpectedly, to wounds long-buried in herself. Tallulah swears she'll leave the first chance she gets, yet when given the choice, it may prove harder to keep the promise to her friend than to say good-bye to the strangers who have become her new family.
"The action moves at a breakneck pace as Talullah changes from an impulsive, difficult teen to a thoughtful young woman with direction." School Library Journal
"It's an involving, nuanced character study that keeps the reader interested throughout. Honest and realistic — a winner." Kirkus Reviews
