Eleven-year-old Poppy Ray longs to be a veterinarian, but she's never had a pet. This summer, she's going to spend a month with her uncle Sanjay, veterinarian and owner of the Furry Friends Animal Clinic on an island off the Washington coast.

 

Poppy is in for big surprises. She loves tending to the dogs, cats, and even a bird, and she discovers the fun of newborn puppies and the satisfaction of doing a good job. But she learns that there's more to caring for animals than the stethoscope and cotton swabs in her Deluxe Veterinarian First-Aid Kit. She's not prepared for quirky pet owners, gross stuff, or scary emergencies. With help from a boy named Hawk, a chunk of seaglass, and a touch of intuition, Poppy gains a deeper understanding of the pain and joy of working with animals.

 

With warmth and humor, Anjali Banerjee tells the story of a resourceful, determined girl who can't wait to grow up, but begins to realize just how much she has left to discover.

From the Hardcover edition.

This is a great book for kids who love animals, however the stories that are told are not just the "warm fuzzies", animals also get hurt and die. This is an eye-opener for the main character, Poppy Ray, and may also be for some readers. Other serious subjects are also introduced such as being away from your family, racial discrimination, and forming mature friendships with members of the opposite sex. Many of these subjects are dealt with in humorous ways which makes them more accessible to younger readers.
