Newbury Award-winning author Cynthia Kadohata shares a heartbreaking story based in reality. A prize German shepherd, Cracker was bred for shows, but when she broke her leg, she was forced to leave Willie, a devoted little boy, and go to Vietnam as part of a military canine unit to sniff out bombs. Rick is her new partner, and the pair becomes inseparable. The story is told from all three points of view, including Cracker's.
