Emily lives in New England with her adoptive parents, who teach at a local college. She has been with them since her adoption right after her birth. She is part black and part white and lives right next to the ocean. One night she experiences a dream about drowning, and then has the same dream for the next two nights. She awakens with the compulsion to go down to the shore and finds a large dog washed up on the rocky ground. He has been injured and has a fractured leg and lacerations. Her father takes him to the vet and they are both told that he has little chance of living, but he does recover with good nursing care and a lot of love to help him. There seems to be a telepathic bond between Emily and Zack (his new name). Mrs. Griswold is a widow who lives down the road and she seems to have a bad reputation. Zack lets Emily know that she is actually lonely and in need of a friend. She takes a chance and goes up to Mrs. Griswold's home and is surprised when she is actually pleasant. Everything seems to be going smoothly until Zack's actual owners show up and want the dog back. They are not very nice people and Emily got the impression through Zack that they had neglected him. There is a conflict between the two men and Zack's vet and Emily and it all straightens out and Emily now can keep Zack. I have a feeling that this telepathic bond between the two will figure greatly in the rest of the series of books due out in the near future. The book is targeting the adolescent and preadolescent reading segment, but adults will enjoy it as I did.
