This is a story that is told by three different perspectives. The three main characters are a golden retriever named Bone, a voice from the past named Charlie, and a young boy named Henry. This is a realistic fiction book. Bone is the first one to enter the story. He is introduced as a puppy, and quickly grows throughout the story, becoming a fully grown dog by the middle of the book. When we first meet him, he is a puppy living with his mother and sister in a shed. The owners of the land are very cruel towards animals, so the dogs stay out of sight. One day when their mother doesn’t return to the shed, Bone and his sister decide to venture out into the wood, knowing it is too risky to stay because of the abusive owner. The two puppies are found by a couple, but then abandon by them at a shopping mall because they realize they do not like dogs. Then a woman adopts Bone and takes him home, separating Bone from his sister forever. The story then cuts to the next character’s perspective, Charlie. He is described as a young teenager, who lost his older brother in an accident that he feels responsible for. Although he has been told by his parents and friends many times that it was not his fault, Charlie feels extremely guilty about the death of his brother. He becomes extremely dependent and close to his dog named Sunny, who used to be his older brother’s, but since the accident, has formed a remarkable bound with Charlie. The last character to be introduced is Henry. He is a young boy who is 11 years old; his best friend has moved away and so he desperately wants a dog to heal the lonely feelings. His parents give him good reasons why he can’t have a dog, but he longs for one anyway. This book jumps back and forth between perspectives, slowly cutting each character out to show how they are all connected. There are many settings in this story. From the woods, to a small town, to a small city, none of the names revealed. There are also different time-periods, for instance, Charlie is the first perspective to be removed from its independence because it is then morphed with Henry’s, when it is revealed that Charlie is Henry’s father. One interesting part of this book is when Bone’s perceptive meets Henry’s. Henry finds Bone digging through his trash can, and then day by day he tries to gain Bone’s trust so that he can keep him as his pet. Then at the end of the story Bone becomes Henry’s dog permanently. I recommend this book to anyone because it is wonderfully written, and it tells an amazing story. People will enjoy this book because it keeps you wanting to read what happens to the characters. It also has a heartwarming ending that readers will love.
