Luke's always been afraid of storms, but it's gotten worse since his mother died from a freak lightning accident. Now, his brothers are constantly teasing him. He can barely have a conversation with them. He's also not sure how to talk to his father anymore.My Thoughts: This book is different from other Maria V. Snyder books and I admit, it took me by surprise. But I wasn't surprised to find myself loving it. I felt for Luke - for all he's been through, for his guilt, and for the tough moments between him and his family. The family drama was both heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. I loved the moments between him and the dogs. I like his developing friendship with Megan. I found the search and rescue parts very interesting. A fantastic heartwarming tale about a boy and his quest for a dog.
When he volunteers at a pet facility that breeds search and rescue dogs, he falls in love with a dog. It's a different type of dog than the kind his keeps, but it's the exact type of dog he was talking about with his mother before she died. The same type he wanted for his birthday - and it's still a search and rescue dog. His father won't speak about it.
The more he helps train the dogs, the more he thinks of owning this puppy. Can he change his father's mind?
