Description

K. A. Nuzum-best-selling author of A Small White Scar, named a Booklist Top Ten First Novel and nominated as an ALA Best Book for Young Adults- delivers clear, crisp prose that's reminiscent of John Steinbeck. The Leanin' Dog tells the bittersweet tale of a girl with agoraphobia, a dog with claustrophobia, and the friendship that saves them both. Dessa really needs a friend. A friend with whom she can confide and share all the joys of Christmas. But with hope almost gone, Dessa hears a scratching sound that changes her life forever.

Professional reviews

"This unusual and compelling story about the friendship between a girl and a skittish dog is narrated by Liz Morton. Desa Dean is unable to leave the confines of her isolated mountain cabin after witnessing her mother's horrible death: she froze to death. Living with her taciturn father, Desa longs for a friend she can confide in. Morton's slow pacing mirrors Nuzum's pithy, beautifully written narrative. Her limited use of expression flawlessly captures this 11-year-old girl's struggle to overcome her troubles. Desa's life changes when a three-legged dog, a victim of abuse, stumbles into her life. With patience and a lot of love the two find the comfort they need. Listeners who like animal stories, such as SHILOH, will enjoy Morton's interpretation of Nuzum's heart-tugging story. L.C.
