Check out this great Review!
"First, the photography in the book was beautiful. Clear pictures, sharp color, good centering of subject. And they really added to the quality of the book.
I did feel that margins should have been larger. The font was very large, which may have been okay for that age group of the targeted audience, but more white space around the edges would have been nice.
The story itself was brutally honest, yet told compassionately. I loved the clear message it sends to youth who want a pet. And also, I think, a message to parents. The decision carries responsibilities for everyone.
Thank you for the opportunity to read it and share my thoughts."
