Based on a real-life partnership, the heartening story of the love and teamwork between a girl and her service dog will illuminate and inspire. Rescue thought he'd grow up to be a Seeing Eye dog - it's the family business, after all. When he gets the news that he's better suited to being a service dog, he's worried that he's not up to the task. Then he meets Jessica, a girl whose life is turning out differently than the way she'd imagined it, too. Now Jessica needs Rescue by her side to help her accomplish everyday tasks. And it turns out that Rescue can help Jessica see after all: a way forward, together, one step at a time. An endnote from the authors tells more about the training and extraordinary abilities of service dogs, particularly their real-life best friend and black lab, Rescue.

"Narrator John McDonough's rich and warm voice is reassuring in this true story of a young service dog and a young woman who is a new amputee. Both are in training--one to learn the ways of a service dog and the other to learn new ways of getting around and to use a prosthetic leg. With steady pacing, McDonough details the progress of both, all the while voicing the anxiety of making new friends and facing new challenges. McDonough's pace increases slightly as Rescue and Jessica celebrate the successes they share. The production concludes with an author's note providing background information about Jessica, Rescue, and NEADS (National Education for Assistance Dog Services), the organization that brought them together.
