Jean Little's poignant novel about an abandoned girl, and the dog who helps teach her how to trust again.

Ten-year-old Min has had a long history of foster care since she was abandoned at age three. Now, let go by yet another foster family, Min continues to build a protective wall around herself. Her newest caregiver, a former Children's Aid doctor, sees past Min's hardened shell and tries to find a way to reach her...and does, finally, by taking in a sick, neglected dog that has escaped from a puppy mill. While watching the dog recover and open its heart to its new owners, Min comes out of her own shell.

Readers will rejoice as Min opens her heart and allows herself to be a part of a loving family, to make friends and to finally stand up to the taunts of a bully, whose hurtful words have contributed to her lack of self-esteem.

Oh wow. This book is AMAZING! It has inspired me to write yet ANOTHER story. Min is an interesting character, and Jess is awesome too. This book is super! It's beyond words. It's a breeze to read, but it will still persuad you to go back to it and read it over again and again. I LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH!!!!

Min Randall is a foster child who was thrown away multiple times. With this hurting background, Min strives through obstacles in her life. Her friend, a "kindred spirit", is Dr. Jess Hart, who was also thrown away and understands Min more than she's ever been understood before. This book is a great read!
