Zoe's family rescues dogs in need, so in her house there is always the sweet smell of dog and a warm body looking to cuddle or play. The fur flies everywhere and covers everything. Zoe's house is never silent. The house across the street is another story; it's always quiet these days. A new family has moved in and Phillip, the boy, has stopped speaking. He doesn't even want to try. Saving dogs and saving boys may be different jobs, but Zoe learns that some parts are the same. Both take attention and care. They take understanding and time. And maybe just a bit of white fur flying.
