Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nicky Flynns life just got a whole lot harder. His parents are going through a messy divorce, and as a result hes starting a new life, in a new city, in a new school. Now his mom has brought home Reggie, a German shepherd from the animal shelter. At first Nicky isnt sure about Reggie, but soon he discovers that Reggie—who used to be a seeing-eye dog—is a true friend he can rely on. But when Nick tries to reconnect with his dad, he puts everything on the line, including the life of his new best friend.

Art Corriveau is a brilliant voice in middle-grade fiction, and How I Got a Life and a Dog is a heartfelt and honest look at the effects of divorce and the wonders of friendship.

Synopsis:

A fresh and evocative new voice in middle-grade fiction delivers a heartfelt and honest look at the effects of divorce and the wonders of friendship.

About the Author

Art Corriveaus first novel, Housewrights, was for adults and was published by Penguin in 2002. Library Journal called it “one of the better debut novels of [the] year,” while Publishers Weekly said “Corriveau is a smooth, evocative writer who creates engaging character.” His adult short fiction has been anthologized in literary journals in the United States, the UK, and Canada, and as a travel writer he has lived in and written about Great Britain, France, the Netherlands, Sweden, Thailand, and Hong Kong. He holds an MFA in writing from the University of Michigan and lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
