One of the best books I've read in years

So many truths spoken by a young boy in tandem with his beautiful dog. It was so rewarding getting such an insight into cystic fibrosis from this perspective: Jasper's and his mother's. But the story went so much deeper than that. I so enjoyed listening to her transformation from a non believer to embracing the wonder if Whistler and his kind. Loved this book!
