Overview

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.

Great story about relationships, acceptance and forgiveness. Heartwarming but still with lots of tense, action packed moments. Although this book is listed as appropriate for ages 9-12, it is one that can be enjoyed by adults as well. Just keep in mind that the story is being told through the eyes of a young teenager. A must read for animal lovers.
