From award-winning author Barbara O'Connor comes a middle-grade novel about a girl who, with the help of the dog of her dreams, discovers the true meaning of family. Eleven-year-old Charlie Reese has been making the same silent wish since fourth grade, hoping that some day it will come true. When her irresponsible parents send her to the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina to live with family members she doesn't know, she needs that wish to come true more than ever. A stray dog, a great friend, and the love of a big-hearted aunt and uncle just might make it happen.

    Great book, narrator was perfect! Elementary age book, but can be enjoyed by all!

  • Crimson S.

    A delightful elementary aged read with themes that touch on anger management, apologizing, making amends, and giving and receiving love and support. The end was rushed but I would still definitely recommend. The narrator is FABULOUS.

    LOVE THIS BOOK!! I think I had tears in my eyes through the whole book... while I was at work. Charlie the narrator and the feisty main character reminded me of me when I was a kid, always fighting for herself and others. Has a great happy ending, but I'm not giving it away.
