But he can't get his mom on board with his plan. Buddy is a dog who needs a boy. Buddy has an owner already, but not one who understands the kind of love and carethe "something more"a dog needs. Mr. LaRue is a neighbor who needs a community. He's alone all the time in his huge old houseand everyone needs more than that. Over the course of a summer thunderstorm and one chaotic town council meeting, these three characters cross paths and come together in a timeless tale ripe with emotions and told in verse that resolves with love, understanding, and a sense of belongingplus a place to play a game of fetch!
