Fight for Life

This is a very exciting and interesting book. It's about an 11 year old girl that lives with her grandmother, Dr. MacKenzie or Dr. Mac, because her parents died in a car crash when she was 7. The book is about Maggie who is having trouble with her grades in school, and she is banned from the clinic until her grades go up. On top of that, since she can't do the work if she's banned, some kids from school help out at the clinic. She feels like she doesn't belong there anymore. Plus it's worse when her cousin, Zoe, who's mother is an actress comes to stay. The story is about a man who is running a puppy mill which is illegal. He sells sick, dirty puppies at the farmer's market. Maggie, her cousin, and "friends" try to stop the man from selling the pups. It's full of sad times, and good times. This is a good book if you love puppies.

Do you know what it's like to be a vet volunteer?

This book is the 1st book of a series called Wild At Heart. It is about a girl who lives with her Grandma and her Grandma is a vet. There is a puppy mill and they try to find who made it and try to heel all the sick puppies. It is a excelent book for people who like dogs.

Read This Book!

I highly recommend that you read this book everyone because it is funny, realistic, and sad. Laurie Halse Anderson makes this book very realistic. She doesn't make all the puppies live, healthy, and cared for like in a fairy tale, she makes them sick, small, weak, and neglected. Also she doesn't make Maggie smart and perfect, she makes Maggie a person who hates school and who can't do well in school. Fight for Life is also very funny because one time Maggie's Grandma calls her teacher while grooming a dog. When Maggie's grandma tells the dog to sit down and not to get so worked up, the teacher thinks that she is talking to her! Fight for Life is sad because someone is abusing the dogs and not caring for them that well, which results in the puppies getting very sick and some puppies dying. This book was great and I recommend that you get it and read it.

Best Book Award! Inspirational!

This book was both interesting and exciting. When you read this book, you will think of all the dogs that came from puppy mills. This book will show you that you can help these dogs. You can make a difference with these dogs lives. But in the meantime your efforts can close down all the puppy mills in the world, by not buying puppies from them, and doing research on your breeder so you get a healthy puppy dog. I really liked this book and you will too!

Puppy Love for Summer

This story, of a 13-year-old girl and her grandmother, who is a veterinarian, focuses mainly on puppies. It starts out with puppies being brought into the "Wild at Heart" veterinary clinic. The puppies had been purchased at the farmer's market. Maggie, the girl, is taken by surprise when her grandmother gives away her jobs helping out to other kids around the neighborhood, to give Maggie more time to study. When the kids find out that there's a law against treating dogs badly, the kids try to save the underfed and dehydrated puppies that were brought into the clinic.I think the book was a very good book because it was very hard to stop reading it! You just want to find out what happens next.
