The Mountaintop School for Dogs and Other Second Chances

Ellen Cooney

24-year-old Evie is making her way to the Sanctuary. It is a place where humans save dogs, who, in turn, save the humans. Evie has lied to gain entry. She has pretended to know more than she does about dogs, but she is learning fast. Once the indomitable Mrs. Auberchon lets her pass, she will find her way. Like the Rottweiler who's a hopeless candidate for search-and-rescue, Evie comes from a troubled past. But as they all learn, no one should stay prisoner to a life she didn't choose. A moving and hilarious chronicle of the ways in which humans and canines help each other from the author of Lambrusco (2008).
