Great for young readers experiencing difficult emotional times!
I loved this book! Not only am I an animal lover, but I also live in a small, rural community so I also understand that stray dogs can sometimes be a problem. I think this book would be great to use in a classroom in which emotions were being discussed. Counselors should also keep this book on hand for situations where a student may have lossed a loved one. If a student has experienced the same loss as Dill, the main character, it could help them cope with their pain. My only complaint is that I had a difficult time visioning Dill and the other characters. However, I thought the book was filled with valuable life lessons! Anyone who has lost a loved one or has an emotional connection to their pet will enjoy this book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Review of Dog Gone
I loved this book! Having lived in a rural community I know that roaming dogs are a problem. Ms. Willis writes with compassion and tenderness of the emotions of a young girl who has lost her mother and may soon loose her beloved pet. The reader is immediately drawn into the story and captivated until the end. Congratulations, Ms. Willis, on your first effort. I look forward to your next book.Was this review helpful?

A Review of Dog Gone
As an animal lover, I was very moved by this story. I truly enjoyed Ms. Willis' witty humor, yet at the same time , her ability to portray so well, a young girl fighting her emotional demons. A very captivating, thought provoking book....Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
