    Attention all horse owners, a dog named Riley is off his leash and he loves to chase livestock. Do you want him to be kept away or should he stay?

    The Summer of Riley begins with a boy named William, who is going through some tough times, with his parents separated and his grandfather dead he tries not to show that he doesn¿t really enjoy life right now. Grace is William¿s best friend who helps him through the tough times. His mom decides to let William get a dog. He decides to get a loveable Golden Retriever mix who he calls Riley. Riley is the perfect dog for William until he noticed Peachie¿s horse. William found out that Riley loves to chase livestock. So Peachie calls animal control and gets Riley in trouble. William fights hard with the government to get him back, but it¿s not enough. Monk¿s Hill Oregon will never be the same if Riley stays. But where will he go¿¿.Sadly William loses to the government but what happened to Riley? Is he gone forever or in a better place? I absolutely adored this book!¿ The Summer of Riley is sad but funny at the same time. I give this book four stars for its great descriptive language and elicits and emotions. I would recommend this book to a friend especially one who loves animals. This book made me realize how hard it would be if my dog got in trouble like Riley and me having to loose her. My first dog was euthanized so I know how William feels about his dog in line to be gone. I¿ve learned to keep a hold of my dog because you never know what kind of trouble she can get into. But the big question is where is Riley now¿¿¿¿.

    A Very Cute Book!

    I really enjoyed reading this book. I liked the story, but I thought the dog would be around more. The dog disappeared from the book early, and the rest was about getting the dog back. The dog never did come back, and when I picked up the book I thought I was going to read a book with a dog around through the whole book.

    Willliam needed Riley!

    Eleven year old William had one friend, Grace, but that wasn't enough. His parents were divorced, and to him, nothing could go worse... so he visits the pound and finds Riley. Riley is a great dog, and William needed him, they were a great match. Then, out of the blue, Riley chases a prized horse, and this is just the beginning of everything. Just when you think you know the answer in this book, it all turns around and something else happens. The stir and excitment of the town will make you want to keep on reading. So... to figure out what happens to Riley read this great book by a wonderful, well known author.
