Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Nicki has had a summer worthy of the American Girl Today series. When she wasn't helping her pregnant mom around the house, she was spending time with Sprocket, the affectionate service dog she was training for a few months. And somehow during that busy vacation, she found time to befriend Kris, a new girl at school. But now, with fall fast approaching, Nicki begins to ponder the upcoming year. She worries that when her best buddy Becca returns from vacation, she and Kris won't gel, and she knows how sad she will be when Sprocket, that young girl's best friend, has to leave. An absorbing read.
Children's Literature - Suzanna E. Henshon
Nikki has been very busy all summer long. She has helped train Sprocket, her service dog, and she has run errands around the family ranch. Nikki has also assisted her mother, who is expecting twins at the end of the summer. What could be more exciting than getting two new siblings at the same time? Becca, Nikki's good friend, has been out of town all summer and Nikki has become good friends with Kris in the meantime. What will happen when Becca comes back? Can the three girls be good friends—or will someone get left out of the circle? Nikki also worries about Sprocket. If he passes advanced training, she will lose her beloved dog. Now that Nikki and her brother, Andrew, love Sprocket, they are sad to think he might leave their home soon, even if that means the dog can make a difference in the life of a person with disabilities. As the birth of her twin siblings approaches, Nikki is torn in a dozen directions. In this heart-warming story, readers meet Nikki, an inspiring and intelligent character who will appeal to children ages 8-12. Reviewer: Suzanna E. Henshon, Ph.D.

    Great book!!

    This book was personally one of my favorites. It is amazing how well ten year old Nicki can train Sprocket to be a service dog, practicly alone!! When Sprocket passes advanced training, Nicki isn't sure wheather she should be happy or sad that he passed. But soon enough, Nicki's mom who was pregnent, had to go to the hospital to have the babies. Once the babies were born, Nicki's parents had not chosen names for the twin babies, and they let Nicki choose the names. Nicki named them aftet her friends, Becca and Kris. The names for the twins were, Rebecca and Kristine. After the babies turned one month old, Nicki got to visit Sprocketand his new owner who was in a wheelchair. Her name was, Laura.
