More than anything, Dessa Dean needed a friend. A friend to love and confide in, a friend with whom she could share her heart. A friend who would delight in all the beauty and joy and fun of Christmas, only four days away.

Annotation The unthinkable happened to 11-year-old Dessa Dean: she watched helplessly as her mother froze to death in an unexpected snowstorm. Unable to cope with her grief, Dessa refuses to leave her house and is constantly tortured by both night terrors and daymares. Then one day a shy and nervous stray dog arrives on her front porch. At first the terrorized dog won't come near Dessa, but she works to slowly win his confidence, a situation which helps her resolve her fears and feelings about her mother's sad death.
