A heartwarming story about a girl who feels like her life is out of her control—and the inspirational friendship between her pet sheepadoodle and an orphaned fawn that she's determined to protect.

Sienna Chen loves helping her parents run their B&B and hanging out with her best friend, a sheepadoodle named Jules. Her world is chaotic, but she knows that by staying on top of everything she can help her parent’s business succeed. No matter how much pressure builds, she’s determined not to let them down.

One day Sienna finds Jules playing with a baby fawn. Sienna names the fawn Persimmon, and learns that it has been orphaned and injured. But taking care of Jules, helping her parents, and hiding Persimmon is a lot for Sienna to take on.

And when Persimmon finds herself in danger, things become even worse! With the help of a new friend, Sienna will have to save Persimmon and learn how to prevent her anxiety from overwhelming her life.
