In this companion to her acclaimed novel, "A Dog''s Life," Martin tells the parallel stories of a stray dog, a boy dealing with unspeakable loss, and a boy whose most ardent wish is to own a dog--and everything for a dog.
From the Publisher:
Bone is a stray dog, all alone in the world, looking for a safe place to call home. Charlie is devastated by the death of his older brother, but at least he has his brother’s dog to comfort him.  All Henry wants is a dog of his own, and even when his best friend moves away, his parents still won’t let him have one. Bone, Charlie, and Henry don’t know each other, but their lives are about to connect in a very surprising way. Because dogs, and dog lovers, have a way of finding each other . . .
Annotation:
Ann M. Martin carefully threads together three touching, and occasionally sad, stories told about a dog and two boys, in this follow-up to A DOG'S LIFE. A stray named Bone finds himself pulled apart from his sister, Squirrel, and experiences a series of homes before finding a place for himself. Charlie, recovering from his brother's death, finds solace in the family dog, Sunny, while Henry is desperate for a dog of his own. The three eventually find one another in a series of compelling events.

Praise

"[Martin] artfully alternates and gradually weaves together threads from the canine and human tales until the three stories converge in time and space into a completely heartwarming and satisfying finale." 07/15/2009

"Each point of view is compelling on its own, but the smooth convergence of the characters' heartwrenching histories shows exceptional engineering and artistry. Animal lovers of all ages will cherish this moving tale of man's--or in this case, boy's--best friend." 08/10/2009
