Jake by Audrey Couloumbis


It was a bit sad to read Jake because I couldn't imagine being him. I have such a big family that if something had ever happened to my Mom, I would have had a bunch of friends and family to stay with. Unfortunately, Jake is not so lucky. It's Christmas time and his mom has an accident and is hospitalized. His grandfather from North Carolina comes to stay with him and then the adventure begins. Jake is a bit scared of his grandfather and the pesky dog, Max who comes with him.

PS Brothers


I just finished reading The PS Brothers by Maribeth Boelts. I'm not a great lover of 'dog' books, but this story was a great read. Sixth graders, Russell and Shawn decide to start a business so they can save up to buy a dog. They decide to start the pooper-scooper(ps) business- hence the title -PS Brothers. The business seems to be doing well. However, the sketchy dog owner, Nick, seems to be doing something a little bit shady and Russell and Shawn decide to investigate.
