This book was a book that any person will enjoy! Except for kids who cant read!
This is about a dog named Bailey who meets a boy named Ethan and they become best friends. They spend every minute together and while Ethan grows up into a teenager,Bailey becomes more attached to him but Ethan becomes less attached. It's a great book you should totally read it.

I bought this book at Barnes and Nobles with another book, Almost Home, and I read this one first. It was an amazing, thrilling, exciting, sad, and a scary adventure! Bailey was the best dog anyone could have and I wish I could have a dog like him. It's kind of odd about a male dog that's named Bailey, I will admit that. But this is a heartwarming story for ages 9 & up. Ethan is a boy with a big heart that can make stupid decisions. Some parts made me cry, but, I'm not a spoiler, so, you'll have to read the book. But I will say that I'm glad the author didn't include anyone dyeing-animal or human.
