Brodie was a good dog. And good dogs go to heaven.

Except Brodie can't move on. Not just yet. As wonderful as his glimpse of the afterlife is, he can't forget the boy he left behind. The boy he loved, and who loved him in return.

The boy who's still in danger.

So Brodie breaks the rules of heaven. He returns to Earth as a spirit. With the help of two other lost souls -- lovable pitbull Tuck and surly housecat Patsy -- he is determined to find his boy and to save him.

Even if it costs him paradise. Even if he loses his eternal soul.

Because it's what a good dog would do.

I can’t even find words to describe how amazing this book was. Dan Gemeinhart has written a truly touching and amazing story about man’s best friend. This novel will leave readers laughing until they are crying and crying until they are laughing. Brodie the dog should have been perfectly happy in doggy heaven. There were endless hills to run through, soft wet grass to roll in, and spirit dogs everywhere. But Brodie couldn’t shake the feeling that he was forgetting something…his boy. As Brodie slowly begins to regain his memories (which were lost after he died), he realizes that his boy (who is still in the real world) is in grave danger. Determined to save him, Brodie and his new friend, Tuck, travel back into the living world and attempt to find and save Brodie’s boy. As Brodie remembers more about his past, he finds more clues leading to his boy, building into a thrilling climax. Along the way, Brodie and Tuck encounter enemies and form new allies. Join these two brave souls as they journey back into the land of the living to find Brodie’s boy, even if it means losing their eternal souls, forever. I highly recommend this gripping novel to readers of all ages; I promise it will leave you on the edge of your seat. Reviewed by: Roksanna K, age 13, Broward County Mensa
