Buddy is a dog who needs a boy. Buddy has an owner already, but not one who understands the kind of love and care--the "something more"--a dog needs.
Mr. LaRue is a neighbor who needs a community. He's alone all the time in his huge old house--and 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 andtold in verse that resolves with love, understanding, and a sense of belonging--plus a place to play a game of fetch!
