Description

From Barbara O'Connor, the beloved author of Wish, comes a big-hearted story about the meaning of friendship, the challenges of growing up, and one lovable runaway dog. Mavis Jeeter is fearless and bold, but she has never lived in one place long enough to have a real best friend. Her flighty mother has uprooted them again to another new home and taken a job as a housekeeper for the Tully family. Mavis wants this home to be permanent?which means finding herself a best friend. Rose Tully is a worrier who feels like she doesn't quite fit in with the other girls in her neighborhood. Her closest friend is Mr. Duffy, but he hasn't been himself since his dog died. Rose may have to break a few of her mother's many rules to help Mr. Duffy?and find someone who really understands her. Henry has run away from home, but he craves kindness and comfort?and doesn't know where to look for them. When Mavis and Rose hatch a scheme to find Mr. Duffy a new dog, their lives and Henry's intersect?and they all come to find friendship in places they never expected.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Nina Alvamar delivers an energetic tone for soon-to-be- fifth-grader Mavis, who finds herself moving once again when her mother finds a new job as a housekeeper in Landry, Alabama. Mavis decides that this time she will make a best friend, and Rose, the daughter of her mother's employer, seems like a perfect fit. They spend the summer together, going on adventures and trying to find a home for Henry, a runaway dog. Alvamar easily transitions from spirited Mavis to even-tempered Rose, and finally to Henry. The characters are voiced without regional accents, which does seem like a missed opportunity. Still, listeners will be captivated by the escapades of Mavis, Rose, and Henry as their friendship thrives. M.D. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
