I honestly don’t know how to begin. This single chapter book has rocked me. The heartbreakingly beautiful book is told by JC, who is talking to his dog, Boy.
JC’s story is beautiful, even though there is no real dialogue, the story moves quickly as the reader is pulled into this story of desperation, fear, love, and hope. You quickly realize that there is a very good chance that JC’s story will not have a happy ending.
From the disastrous streets of his home country to the terrifying parts of his new father, JC’s story will grab you and not let go.
This story is both heartwarming and devastating. Beautiful and horrible. I honestly can’t think of more to say about it, so I feel like I’m babbling. Pick up the book, grab a good snack, and get ready to be pulled through the emotional roller-coaster this book will take you down.
