Funny, comforting, surprising, the words in this book explore our lives with dogs: dogs who befriend us; dogs who annoy, perplex, and accept us. Teens speak for themselves in honest and forthright essays while Joyce Sidman’s insightful poems further express the bond between dog and teen: how days of crowded hallways, pointless assignments, and blinding crushes are brought to balance by our dogs. For as Doug Mindell’s winning photographs confirm, at the end of the day, waiting at home, there is always Dog—full of hope and companionship.

The stories are not great. The poems are terrible. This was written like a 5th grader tried but failed. Not worth money.
I ONLY READ THE OVERVIEW, BUT IT SEEMS GOOD
