As an owner of rescued dogs, this story really spoke to me. It tells about the plight of abandoned animals and those who rescue them without being preachy and without speaking "over the heads" of its youthful readers. Forever Home is going to find a place on my animal stories shelf.
Forever Home, the latest book in the Max and Annie series, follows Trini's adventures and the obstacles she must overcome to find a permanent or forever home. Trini's courage and persistence in her quest shows us that hard times can be endured and conquered with humor, determination, and a little help from those who rescue the abandoned and thrown away. Trini's story will make you cry, laugh and realize that despite the odds, finding a place to belong is possible!
