A Dog Called Homeless - Book Review

 Dog Called Homeless

Book Review By: Laura

Cally is a young girl who has gone though
a lot. Her mum died in a car crash on her father’s birthday and her best friend’s mia and daisy just started to make fun of her and leave her out. So Cally decided to
sign up for sponsored silence for a day which means she had to not speak from 9:00am to 3:00pm but Cally decided to take it to the next level and not speak for as many days as she could.

 One day Cally was doing a counselling session with her teacher aid. She happened to look out the window and saw a dog and from then on she kept seeing the dog all the time. It was like the dog was following her everywhere. She decided to call the dog homeless!

The book is a sad book but you will love the ending! It was the best part for me! It is one of those endings when everything finally comes together and makes sense.

The only thing I didn’t like was when the book got a little confusing in the middle. It seemed to drag a bit.  But other than that it is a great and interesting book!

 I think the book is best suited for 11-12 year olds because it is quite sad.
A Dog Called Homeless is Sarah Lean’s first novel. I am looking forward to reading more of her books.
