Ten-year-old Min has had a long history of foster care since being abandoned in a public washroom at age three. When Min is dumped by her latest foster mother just before Christmas, Jess Hart, a former Children's Aid doctor who knows Min and sees past her hardened shell, decides to take her home for a couple of weeks to see how the two of them get along. Jess has long had thoughts of becoming Min's official foster mother, or even adopting her. On their way to find a Christmas tree, Min finds a young dog that's near death and brings it home. As the dog's timidness and distrust of people begins to lessen, Min realizes how much she has herself been "walling" people out. Min starts to open up, makes some new friends and even stands up to her old nemesis, the bullying and taunting Laird. This is a story of an abandoned dog helping an abandoned girl open her heart and let in a new family. Jean Little's incredible gift for portraying emotion and creating real people on the page shines in this touching novel.

Oh wow. This book is AMAZING! It has inspired me to write yet ANOTHER story. Min is an interesting character, and Jess is awesome too. This book is super! It's beyond words. It's a breeze to read, but it will still persuad you to go back to it and read it over again and again. I LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH!!!!

Min Randall is a foster child who was thrown away multiple times. With this hurting background, Min strives through obstacles in her life. Her friend, a "kindred spirit", is Dr. Jess Hart, who was also thrown away and understands Min more than she's ever been understood before. This book is a great read!
