Twelve-year-old Bree Davies is devastated when her beloved Border Collie, Danny, goes missing after her mom leaves the gate open to their Santa Monica home. In her search to find Danny, Bree is thrust into the world of animals in need. With the help and guidance of animal rescuer Rayleen, Bree's heart is opened to the plight of the dogs in the downtown Vox Street shelter. Before long, her emptiness about her own loss shifts into action – and her quest to find Danny and her newfound mission to save the shelter dogs soon become one.

Longtime animal rescuer Linzi Glass has crafted a singular story of finding oneself in the search for finding another, a compelling emotional journey as well as a call-to-action for animal-lovers everywhere.

What a wonderful way to introduce children to animal rescue. Bree's heartbreaking and ultimately triumphant foray into the world of rescue is real and compelling. This is a book that parents will also want to read -- not only to discuss with their children, but because it's absorbing for all ages.

Bree's parents are busy with their jobs but once she is given a dog, Danny, she is no longer lonely. Until, disaster strikes and Danny disappears. Bree is devastated and determined to find him. Her search takes her to a lost animal shelter and she decides to try and find homes for all the dogs there.Although the main theme of the book is that of lost dogs, Bree also deals with changing friendships, the beginning of a romance and feeling alienated from her parents. This is a great story that will appeal to all animal lovers. Suitable for ages 9 and up.

Do you love dogs? You should read this book. This book would tell you that don’t just worry about your problems but worry about other people as well.    Bree Davies was a young girl who loved her dog. But one day her mom had accidently left the gate opened and the dog slipped out. The dog was Danny. This story is a journey that Bree takes to find her dog. On the way she meets some friends and helps more dogs.    I absolutely loved this book. I like dogs so that is one reason why. But also I loved that Bree worked hard to help other dogs as well as her dog.    I think anyone could read this. But if you love dogs you should definitely read this.

If you want a good book with a touch of emotion and funny, then this book is perfect for you. I would definitely read any other books by this author when I find one. This story did move me. This book is for someone who really wants an easy read and a book that they can just sit down and read.
