Rachel is happiest when she's volunteering at the animal shelter, especially after she meets the feral collie she names Grrl; they're both angry and alone. When a teacher encourages her to write about it, Rachel finds another outlet for her pain and frustration. But writing about Grrl is much easier than teaching Grrl to trust her. And when Griffin, the new boy in school, devises a plan to spring Grrl from the shelter and bring her home, Rachel finds that the dog isn't the only one who must learn to trust.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful although straydog is a short read it is very good! I managed to finish it very quickly and some people might need some tissue at the end! Straydog is about a girl whos never had a friend in her life until one guy changes how she feels about "best friends" Together they struggle to free the one person Rachel really feels like he can relate to.. a feral dog straight from the streets she names Grrl. This story will keep you absorbed from cover to cover! Great read for teens of all ages (please note that this book is only 106 pages long!!!)
