Wonderful Middle School/Junior High lever reader

Judging from the reviews, it looks like I wasn't the only one who was affected by this book... I was 12-13 yrs old when I read this book. Bristle Face, and it's sequel "Sputters", still bring back fond memories. Just as "Where The Red Fern Grows" is a wonderful story of a boy and his dogs with a tear-jerker ending, so is Bristle Face. It is also the equal of Red Fern, but just suffers from not having as good press. I waiting with baited breath for the time when my 6-yr-old is a little older so we can enjoy the story together at bed time!

Awesome book!!

This is a great book. It makes a great read aloud for the family. Jase Landers is a young boy who is running away from an abusive uncle. He is headed to Memphis, Tennessee when he stumbles upon a shaggy, glassy eyed, dog. Even though Bristle Face is not much to look at he will show much more character than most dogs. He is full of love and loyalty for Jase. In Bristle Face Jase finds a friend when he needed one the most. Jase will not be a boy forever because this dog will change his life.

Rush of old memories

I am 50 years old, I read BRISTLE FACE when I was in Jr. High at age 12 or 13 .. I have NEVER forgotten it. I was browsing some book titles today and saw it listed and a rush of old memories came flooding back. I can remember the book as if I had read it yesterday. This book is a wonderful tale of love shared between a lonely man, a lonely boy, and a wonderul dog. It is masterfully written, the character developement is top notch. You cannot read this book without it making a lasting impression. I am going to buy it and read it again!

I read this book when I was in Jr. High school, great book.

This book made an impression on me that I will never forget. My girl friend hit me in the head with it, just kidding. This is a great book for anyone who feels all alone growing up. I will never forget Bristle Face and Jase and the love they had for each other. I was 13 when I first read it. I recommend this book for troubled teens.
