Publisher's Summary

When Justin's older brother, Kyle, is killed in Afghanistan, Justin can't believe that his brother is really gone. Except there's one thing that Kyle left behind....

Max is a highly trained military canine who has always protected his fellow soldiers. But when he loses his handler and best friend, Kyle, Max is traumatized and unable to remain in the service. Max is sent home to America, where the only human he connects with is Justin, and he is soon adopted by Kyle's family, essentially saving his life.

At first Justin has no interest in taking care of his late brother's troubled dog. However, the two learn to trust each other, which helps the four-legged veteran become his heroic self once more. As the pair start to unravel the mystery of what really happened to Kyle, they find more excitement - and danger - than they bargained for. But they might also find an unlikely new best friend - in each other.

This was a sweet book for all ages. It’s a good family read, and a great book for young readers. One thing, however, that occurred to me while I was reading, was the fact that this book was possibly a wee bit gender stereotypical. This book also reminded me that when a family is going through a rough time,that a bond with an animal can provide comfort for a child, as well as well as a means for the family getting to a better place.

Great Family Book

My kids and I all enjoyed listening to this one. The pace was great with just enough suspense mixed with feel-good moments to keep us interested. The narrator was pretty good, too.

Good listen

Didnt care for the narrator in the beginning and hiw he tried to change his voice for different characters (mainly females), but once the story got going I couldnt stop listening.
