This is a book with everything! Engaging characters, pacy plot and a lovable dog. Once you start, you can't put this book down and you will find yourself laughing and crying at the Stephenson family and Rocky the greyhound. The whole book is true-to-life and everyone who reads it will relate to the trials and tribulations of an ordinary family, as seen through the eyes of Anna, the eldest daughter. It is written for children, but all the adults in my house couldn't put it down either. Uplifting, heartwarming and thought-provoking, with a delightfully happy ending.
