“Beautiful and lyrical. . . . A tender and heartfelt tale that is sure to delight dog-loving readers or anyone who likes their happy endings to be hard-earned.” — School Library Journal

Daisy, age twelve, has died in a car accident. Her soul is directed back to Earth, but not as a human being — she’s returning as a dog. A dog who retains Daisy’s thoughts and memories and is determined to get back to her parents and home. She doesn’t expect that life as a dog named Ray would come with new worries — and moments of jubilation — as she grows to care for others in a whole new way.
