Great book!!!

I can't lie - this book was really, really great! I grabbed it, not excepting a whole lot, but it turned out to be one of my favorite books! It's somewhat emotional because Georgina (the main character) faces many hardships that many face today. She is homeless, and her little brother, mother, and she have to live in their truck because they have no money, which leads to Georgina's father, who left years ago, along with all of their money. Georgina has to go to local restruants and stores just to wash her hair. It's sad to think that's how she - just a young girl - has to live her life in order to survive. Georgina has to watch over her little brother, Toby, a lot after school since her mom juggles two jobs. Eventually Georgina can't take it anymore. She doesn't want to live in a truck anymore. And she wants to help her mother and brother, so she crafts a plan to steal a rich woman's beloved dog....I don't want to spoil such a good book, so I'll stop there. How to Steal a Dog is a great, great, GREAT book! Go buy it!!! There a creative and clever twists and turns that will not leave you disappointed.

Georgina did not like living in a car going from neighborhhod to neighborhood with her mom and brother. She decided she wanted to steal a dog and collect the reward money. She kept all of her thoughts in one of her note books. When she finally decided to steal the dog, she found more problems. She got the dog and hid the dog, Willy, at an old abandoned house in the woods. When Georgina met the dog's owner, she started to feel bad for what she did. Would Georgina's guilt stop her from collecting the reward money? This is a good book, but it doesn't always fill in the blanks. There are some questions that don't get answered. I think this is book for anyone who wants to read about an amazing brave girl who tries to do whatever she can to help her family. The author, Barbara O'Connor, does a good job of taking a serious topic and making it into a realistic story that could happen to anyone anywhere.

    The book its self is ok but it needs more sespence. The book is for second-forth grade, but otherwise the book was good. In more ways if you dont like sespence the book was very good, its not romantic, not scary, but kind of a sob story with a... can't tell the type of ending. Sorry
