Born between a board fence and a set of trash cans, the hero of this absorbing new novel by Newbery Medalist Lois Lowry is a lowly stray dog.

His journey out of puppyhood, in which he becomes the loyal companion to a homeless man, discovers an ear for poetry, and meets his match in his brutal rival, Scar, is a story of perserverence in a world of danger and unexpected opportunity. But through it all, he cannot forget his frail little sister, Wispy, and he will not rest until he finds her again.
