Two reasons I am TOTALLY reading this book.
Reason #1: The cover. I mean - dog....cute dog face....say no more....I'm there!
Reason #2: This first line of the Kirkus review (which I cannot read in its entirety because I don't subscribe, so can only read the first part of it):
A motherless girl, a stray dog and a heart-tugging plot—sound familiar? Not so fast—Nuzum's talent shines through to create an original take on a potentially predictable story line
