    I was concerned that this book might be too heavy in the drama. Thank you for reviewing it for us.

    Your review makes me think of The Secrets of Bearhaven series. I’m wondering if the kids that like that series would like this book. Thanks for igniting curiosity!

    I have a select group of students who I would love to recommend this book to. Thanks for giving us some insight into this book.

  4. I always like books where people have connections with animals and this one sounds like it would be perfect. I too, know some students this book would interest and I appreciate your review making us aware of this book. (I also really like to beautiful cover!)
