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.

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.

What a nice book with a relevant theme. As an adult, I read this book and it gave me a different perspective on something I thought I knew about. Aimed at young teenagers, this is a book that everyone should read.
