Abstract:

A Golden Kite Honor Book: A boy grieving the loss of his dog meets a man who can transform the lives of animals & mdash;and people Chad Holloway feels estranged from his entire family. His tantrum-throwing older sister, Julia, and baby brother, Sky, drive him crazy. His parents don & rsquo;t understand him at all. And ever since his grandfather shot Chad & rsquo;s dog Shep, they haven & rsquo;t been speaking to each other, even though Jeep says it was a mercy killing. Queenie, the new puppy Jeep bought to make amends, will never replace Shep. Not even close. Chad has no idea how he & rsquo;s going to get through this summer. Then he meets his new neighbor. David Burton is a shaper & mdash;a dog trainer who changes animals & rsquo; behavior using positive reinforcement. He hires Chad as his assistant and suddenly, things start to happen. Chad uses Queenie as a guinea pig to try out David & rsquo;s techniques. Except Chad starts to feel like he & rsquo;s the one being shaped. And he really likes David & rsquo;s daughter Louise, a dancer who & rsquo;s a year older than Chad. They & rsquo;re helping him to heal and believe in life & rsquo;s wonderful possibilities. Will he be able to forgive his grandfather and find a place in his eccentric family?
