You know how when you finish a book you really liked, you don't want to stop reading so you keep going until you read every last page? Well, that's what I did and was shocked to find it classified as a novel for young adults. Not that it's improperly classified, but I'm old and what am I doing reading children's books? Entering my second adolescence? I know some old people that have done that.
I don't care who you are, I recommend this novel to you.
Hyde has a great ability to make you fall in love with her characters. Angie is no exception. Angie tells her side of the story with grace and maturity, and I couldn't put the book down. I've read most of Hyde's books and enjoyed them all, but this one is easily my favorite and I finished it in just a couple days. I highly recommend it!
While living with an old aunt due to their becoming homeless, her little sister met the next door neighbors Great Dane through the fence. Rigby wss the only calming force in her life. Her autism was an extreme case. Since she could not verbalize she would scream for long periods of time. Once she discovered the dog, her life changed. Rigby wss the only one who kept her calm.
What no one knew was the difference that Rigby and her owner would make in their lives.
As usual ANOTHER MUST READ from MS. Hyde

This story features a young woman - 15 year old Angie. She is moved from Pillar to post with her mother and her autistic sister Sophie because Sophie does not stop shrieking, causing endless complaints and upheaval. At one of many rental properties, Sophie makes an unlikely connection with the neighbours Dog. Which basically starts this story off - and changes everyones lives.
First of all, I adored Angie. A genuine angel of a girl - I just wanted to give her a big cuddle. The mother in this story? She was awful. A terrible, terrible mother forcing Angie to grow up and look after the family where the mother is too immature <- Harsh, but a personal opinion. It pained me to see Angie having to financially AND emotionally support this little family 99% of the time.
I loved the dog, Rigby. My eyes were leaking halfway through this story. A fantastic book.
