A Dog Called Homeless (Hardcover)
Praised by Newbery Medal winning author Katherine Applegate as "graceful" and "miraculous," this Schneider Family Book Award winning novel tells how one girl's friendship with a homeless dog mends a family's heart.
Cally Fisher knows she can see her dead mother, but the only other living soul who does is a mysterious wolfhound who always seems to be there when her mom appears. How can Cally convince anyone that her mom is still with the family, or persuade her dad that the huge silver-gray dog belongs with them?
With beautiful, spare writing and adorable animals, A Dog Called Homeless is perfect for readers of favorite middle-grade novels starring dogs, such as Because of Winn-Dixie and Shiloh.
