Luke is terrified of thunderstorms!  He always has been, but even more so now that his mother has been struck and killed by lightning.  His dad is a rescue dog handler and has promised Luke a dog for his birthday.  His dad makes arrangements for him to work at a neighboring dog kennel in order to pay for the dog, but Luke really wants a different dog than what his dad wants him to have.  Will Luke get the dog he wants?  Will he overcome his fear of thunderstorms?  Read this compelling realistic fiction story to find out.    (Booktalk by Pennsylvania Young Readerís Choice Award Committee)
