Goodnight, Boy (US Only)

by: Nikki Sheehan

Release Date: August 8, 2017

Publisher: Oneworld

About the Book:

A tale of two very different worlds, both shattered by the loss of loved ones. Tragic, comic and full of hope, thanks to a dog called Boy.

The kennel has been JC’s home ever since his new adoptive father locked him inside. For hours on end, JC sits and tells his dog Boy how he came to this country: his family, the orphanage, and the Haitian earthquake that swept everything away. That’s when his adoptive mother Melanie rescued him.

Life was beginning to look good again until JC does something bad, something that upsets his new father so much that he and Boy are banished to the kennel. But as his adoptive father gets sicker, JC and Boy realize they have to find a way out. And so begins a stunning story of a boy, a dog and their journey to freedom.

The cover design is cool, but the book's kennel theme is disturbing!
