From the Publisher:
DOES EVERYONE DESERVE A SECOND CHANCE?
Marty's parents think so -- even Judd Travers, whose history of drinking and violence keeps Marty from completely trusting that his beloved dog, Shiloh, will always be safe from Judd.
"Some people just seem to attract trouble," Marty's Ma says, and Judd attracts the sort of trouble that makes it hard to believe he's really changed. First, the police find the body of a man who'd fought with Judd. Then, a vicious attack forces Judd to kill one of his dogs. But just when it seems Judd will never be able to escape the shadow of his past, a dangerous accident gives him the chance to prove himself. Can Judd Travers actually become a hero?Sixth-grader Marty and his family try to help their rough neighbor, Judd Travers, change his mean ways, even though their West Virginia community continues to expect the worst of him
"The telling details that added heart to the first two novels are present here: the family dynamic that gave the first installments a sense of liveliness is still present: David and Marty are still friends; and Judd, reformed though he may be, is still unpredictable and scary." - Janice M. Del Negro September 1997
