The Leanin' Dog by K.A. Nuzum


Nuzum, K.A. The Leanin' Dog. Joanna Colter Books, 2008, 179 pgs. Language-G Sexual content-G violence-G. Dessa Dean can't go outside. She hasn't been able to since she saw her mother die on the cold snow. One day a dog comes to her doorstep and gives her hope. But will the dog stay? This story touched my heart. This girls love for the dog is just so sweet. I love the way her father cares for her and does what he has to help her. This story definitely deserves to be read. EL-MS - ESSENTIAL.
