My favorite character is Dessa because she expresses how she feels about the dog and how much she loves animals; she is really good with animals. My favorite part is on Christmas day when Dessa wakes up and the dog licks her and then she finds out what the dog’s name is. This is my favorite part because it made me think of my old dog. My less favorite part is when Dessa goes out in a blizzard trying to find the dog/ her best friend. While Dessa is out in the blizzard looking for the dog, she is almost about to die.
I recommend this book to ages 8-13 because it is a really good book. This book has 250 pages with no pictures. You should read this book because it may bring back good memories of your favorite pet or dog you had and loved. If you love dogs then you will enjoy this book.
