This book is about a dog named Shiloh and a boy named Marty. Judd is Marty?s neighbor and he is a really bad person to Marty. First Shiloh was Judd?s dog, but Marty took him away because Judd was mean to the dog and acted like he wanted to kill him! Shiloh doesn?t want to be with Judd so Marty took him away to protect him.

My favorite part is when Judd went hunting and drove his pickup truck and almost killed Marty and Shiloh. I like this part because when you read the sentences you feel like you see it in your head. It is also like someone is showing you a movie. I like Shiloh and Marty. They are my favorite characters because they work like a team together. They go almost everywhere with each other and they are really best friends. I like this book because it reminds me of when my dog Sunny used to follow me everywhere.

I think the author writes like Judy Blume because their writing sounds almost the same. I recommend this book to people who love animals, especially dogs.
