Dog Walker by Karen Spafford-Fitz

Turk needs cash, but he's allergic to his own sweat so getting a job is out of the question. Then he makes a discovery: Girls love dogs. Turk's friends will do anything to meet girls. Turk starts a dog walking business. His friends walk the dogs and Turk collects half the money. In an attempt to impress dog-loving Carly, Turk brags about his business in front of the school tough guy, Chuck. When Chuck learns the true nature of Turk's business and wants in on the action, Turk worries that he will lose his business and Carly's respect.

Read an Excerpt

"Just one question, Turk," Mom says. "Why didn't you tell us sooner?"

Mom must have read another parenting article. I can almost see the headline: Getting your Teen to Open Up to You.

"Well, er...I wanted to get my business running before I said anything. And," I put on my most innocent face, "I had this crazy idea you might think my business was something shady, stupid or immoral."

I can't tell for sure, but I think Mom and Dad almost look ashamed.

This is a kind of good book. It wasn't outstanding like some books I've read. If I had to pick a book this wouldn't be my first choice at all. I would advise that kids read this book.

This book is really ok, but I think that maybe it could have been better. I think this book could be reccommended to little kids like my brother and sister. I don't like this book that much.
