I read just about every dog book (fiction)I find....this one escaped me for a year?? I don't know how but it was worth the wait! What a great story. The interactions of Grace and Rex was clearly played out and then the purpose of the story comes clear at the end. And yes, I cried. A beautiful tribute to the folks who train service dogs AND those shelter pups waiting to find their forever home. I just really loved this story!!!

This book is fabulouiw! It is very good at teaching the reader that life isnt perfect and when it is messed up you have to be creative and find a way to make it better. In this story grace the main character uses getting a shelter dog that talks to her to get her to stop grieving over her dads death. This i recomended for all ages!!!!!

I really enjoyed reading this book!! It is super funny at some parts and suspensful at others. It's about a girl who lost her dad, and feels that it's her fault. Read about how a slightly dumb dog helps her live again.

Is: Wow. This is a really great book. I read it in two days. That is nor a brag, I know there are a lot faster readers out there, but I'm implying it was good. Grace Abernathy's dad died, and to help her, grace' s mom lets her get a puppy to train as a guide dog. Dog talks. Not the usual omg my animal is talking to me book. Bad stuff to take note of: no blood and guts but all the usual gangster stuff, minor bullying, achohal mentioned very briefly. Not to scare you away, this is a really really good book. Nothing made me feel sick like I did when I read the sentance from the hunger games about forcing kids to kill eachother. Actually, nothing even close. I am 11 and I don't watch pg 13 movies, so you can decide whether you should read it by that. What the dog said is an awesome book. - a reader. A reccomendation: the princess curse by merrie haskell. Adaptation of fairytales the twelve dancing princesses and beauty and the beast.

This book was actually the first book that ever made me cry....... other than Old Yeller, which is another book about a dog....Anyway, i could totally relate with gracie in many ways, and rex—the dog— was the comedy relief tis book needed.

That is so sad and touching. i am sorry to hear about your dad. I think animals do understand and they do care about their owner(s) people just don't give them credit. And if you have a problem with that than you can talk to me!!!!!

I am a dog lover but I don't think you have to be to enjoy this story.  I cried when I read it and almost cried when I finished it.  It is one of those books you want to go on and on. Like Gracie in the story I had lost my dad.  I was so broken hearted.  When I returned home from his funeral, I found my solace in my little cocker spaniel.  I often held  him and cried into his soft fur as he sat with me.  He would look up with those shoe-button eyes as if he said "I understand.".  As the story says, dogs are truly angels with tails.
