Preview: Hear it

A young boy tries to find his voice with the help of some fourlegged friends in this elegantly spare novel about the healing power of dogs and love (Publishers Weekly), from the Newberywinning author of Sarah, Plain and Tall.Zoes family rescues dogs in need. There is always the sweet smell of dog and a warm body looking to cuddle or play. There is always a new dog to be saved, and loved. Fur flies everywhere. It covers everything. Zoes house is never silent. The house across the street is always silent these days. A new family has moved in and Phillip, the boy, has stopped speaking. He doesnt even want to try. Saving dogs and saving boys may be different jobs, but Zoe learns that some parts are the same. Both take attention and care. They take understanding and time. And maybe just a bit of white fur flying. From Newbery Medalist Patricia MacLachlan, White Fur Flying is an endearing tale of companionship and hope that is beautifully told, quietly moving, and completely satisfying (Kirkus Reviews).
