I always wonder how publishers think we decided whether to buy a book or not if they don't give us a single clue as to what its about or who it's aimed at. Now Ms Snyder is an author I sometimes really rate (Poison series) and sometimes don't (Glass series), so she's not an automatic buy for me. Anyhow, FYI, here's the synopsis from her website:

"Luke Riley is lost. His mother's recent death has set Luke and his family adrift. Even though his father, twin brothers, and their three Bloodhounds are search and rescue volunteers, they have been unable to rescue themselves and become a family again. The summer after sixth grade looms in Luke's mind as a long, lonely three months where the only thing he can look forward to is watching The Weather Channel. Luke is fascinated with the weather, but since his mother's death in a storm, he is also terrified. Even the promised 13th birthday present of a Bloodhound puppy fails to lift Luke's spirits. He would rather have a different breed - a petite Papillon, but his father insists he get a Bloodhound.

When Luke decides to get the Bloodhound from Willajean, a dog breeder who owns Storm Watcher Kennel, he works out a deal to help at her kennel in exchange for the expensive dog. Thrilled to have a summer with a purpose, Luke befriends Willajean's daughter, Megan and together they plan how Luke can get a Papillon puppy instead of a Bloodhound. But nothing seems to work as they struggle with stubborn fathers, summer storms, unhelpful siblings, and hidden guilt. Can one little white dog really save both families?"

Helpful? I'll consider and if I take the plunge, I'll do a proper review!

I was disappointed in the book. I hadn't realised that it was a children's book, also it was not a fantasy. I would think that it was aimed at the preteens saying that it contained some difficult words that might be New to them.

I decided to read this even after reading terrible reviews. It's a cute story. Absolutely nothing like her previous books. I'm thinking Maria v Snyder should stick to fantasy.
