I love this story! The hook is the promise a story gives you, the reader. The hook for this one is that it’s a true story about a woman who survived the Boston Marathon bombing and the dog who helped her do it. Kids love dog stories, and they love helping people. This story gives them both. The back matter will tell you how service dogs are trained, and the best part…it tells you more about the authors and their dog Rescue,. It’s their story, their autobiography.
Whenever I read or write, I find a comfy chair with a great view. I get my favorite drink, stretch out, and let the words take me away.
