"Unexpected, generous, and poignant." --Huntley Fitzpatrick, author of What I Thought Was True Sixteen-year-old Clair Taylor has neighbors who are what locals call whippoorwills, the kind of people who fill their yards with rusty junk. Clair tries to ignore her surroundings, choosing instead to dream of a future beyond her rural New Hampshire town. But, when a black dog named Wally is chained up to a pole next door, Clair can't look the other way. Clair decides to save Wally, and the immediate connection she has with the lovable dog catches her off-guard, but even more surprising is her bond with eighteen-year-old Danny Stewart, the boy next door.

I really enjoyed this story and read through it quickly. It was a good heartfelt story that made you eant to hug your dog immediately. It was easy to connect, relate and empathize with the characters. Lots of symbolism in the book as well.
