Take a road trip on a mission of mercy to rescue a puppy. Take a cast of misfit characters, including an opinionated old border collie, a few thugs, an aspiring actress, and a broken down truck.  Mix this with snarky teenage attitude and you have a winning combination for a humorous exploit.  United by their love of dogs, this father and son team has written an unusual adventure story.  How it will end is anyone’s guess. Don’t forget to check out the interview with Gary and Jim and find out how they wrote the book.  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award, 2015)
