As long as they can remember, Chris "Puck" Nadir and June "Bug" Deerstone have been neighbors and friends. Over the last year, the pair have grown apart. The sudden disappearance of June's beagle forces the two to understand why they had grown apart as they start a summer job at the carnival fairgrounds and launched their own investigation in what happened to the dog. The investigation leads the teens through Bleakwood, a small Northern Michigan town, and an array of characters until they are confronted with a discovery- one that will change both of their lives.

I bought this novel solely because my daughter liked the picture on the cover. I expected the book to be the run-the-mill story of a dog lost and rediscovered by his family. I could not be further from the truth. The book is a plain coming of age story about two teens- one of them had their dog stolen from them. The book is written for children in the sense that Mark Twain and Rowling write their stories. The book has a story that old and young will like. My main complaint about the book was that the story seemed to be more teen than kid.
