Wither

Review
This book grabbed me within an INSTANT and never let go. Rhine’s story is so heartbreaking and beautiful. And she’s so… vibrant! I can’t imagine being in her situation, but she never gives up. I loved watching how her feelings and emotions towards different characters slowly grow and develop over the course of the book.  Library Catalog

Dogtripping : 25 rescues, 11 volunteers, and 3 RVs on our canine cross-country adventure
Author
Rosenfelt, David
Review
The book is sometimes funny, sometimes sad, and sometimes infuriating (Some people get rid of their dogs for horrible reasons). Rosenfelt interweaves the story of running a dog shelter with his wife with that of the cross-country move he and his wife made with twenty-five dogs, three RV's, and a team of volunteers.  Library Catalog
