Publisher Summary
A boy without a dog and a dog without an owner find each other in this powerfully moving story of loneliness and redemption.

Day after day, Cody watches Bones roam the streets. No one else thinks the old stray is special, but Cody does. He knows the dog is alone now. He watched them tear down the blue house where Bones used to live with an old man. Cody knows how it feels to lose someone too. Slowly--cautiously--Cody opens his home and his heart to the scruffy dog with one blue eye and one brown.

Inspired by the true story reported in the New York Times about a homeless dog in a suburban New York neighborhood, Deborah Blumenthal tells an affecting story of coming to terms with loss and learning to love again.

Adam Gustavson's full-color illustrations highlight the emerging relationship between a lonely boy and the dispirited dog who captures his attention, and finally, his heart.
