5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Lilac Lamb on 6 Mar. 2014
Format: Paperback
I read this book to see if it would be suitable for my 13 year old daughter, and will definitely be recommending it to her. It tells the story of Jess, a girl in her early teens, living in present day multicultural Britain, who is beginning to see that life isn't always easy, and that apparently "good" people are not always what they seem. I would recommend this book for all young teenagers, who are starting to look at the world with fresh eyes, as they leave behind the certainties of childhood and enter the uncertainties of adolescence. They will be able to identify with Jess in this story, The author deals with the legacy of the Second World War, and issues of racial prejudice, with great sensitivity.

What a great book. I read it in one sitting. The story is carefully woven and explores themes that link the past to the present. I enjoyed the characterisation of Jess who is a perfectly normal girl in a way that heroines so often are not. I could identify many of her feelings with those I experienced myself as a teenager. The book deals sensitively with a range of issues ( disability , immigration and life in the Third Reich) and, without being in any way preachy, is thought provoking. As an ex History teacher I really enjoyed finding out about aspects of the Regime that I had not considered before- a school to teach dogs to talk and the fact that Jews had their pets taken from them. The detail in the research is fabulous and the author has given some ideas for further reading which I will be exploring.
A great read for anyone aged between 10 and 110.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was really looking forward to reading this as the subject matter sounded so interesting and the treatment of animals by the Nazis in the Second World War was not something I knew anything about. Jessie is a likeable heroine, her friend Kate, who is in a wheelchair adds immeasurably to the story and all the characters are well drawn. There is plenty going on and the author obviously cares deeply about many injustices within society. For me there were perhaps too many issues covered and I would have liked a little more focus on Gran and her role within the historical side of the story. But it's still a really good read and gets you thinking about all sorts of different things. I would definitely recommend it.

Girl With A White Dog covers huge life issues any teenager goes through, as well as some very current (and very old) social issues. It made me aware of the causal prejudices that children are brought up with, just because people are different - and it's not right. I know that when I have children of my own, this book is going to be on their bookshelves.

I was really touched by this story. It deals with current issues without, for the most part, being preachy. The link between the present and the past is very well drawn, and the story pulled me along and I didn't want to put the book down. Really looking forward to seeing what the author produces next.

Format: Paperback
Take a little time in a quiet place to read this book. It’s a gem; one not to miss. No need to read the reviews, just read the book, because it was such a pleasure to read knowing only that its subject matter related to WW2. I gave it to my 14 year old (it’s a tradition of mine to choose them a book each birthday, so I was lucky to be tipped-off about this one by a friend who then picked it up at a bookshop signing.) I stole it to read first. The characters soon have a real presence and take on a life of their own. The insightful way important issues are addressed make this a valuable read for all generations, not just our youngsters. Mixing fairytale themes with real life, it makes your brain do wonderful things and took me on a very personal journey. No point in writing about the story itself, as I think it will mould to the individual reader. The writing took me warmly by the hand, I didn’t let go until the very end.
