How I, Nicky Flynn, Finally Got A Life (And A Dog) by Art Corriveau

With his mother and father going through a
messy divorce, Nicky Flynn finds himself without
friends, in a new school, and in a strange
city. Things seem even more out of control when
his mom brings home Reggie, a large German
Shepherd from the animal shelter that, as a former
seeing eye dog, thinks it’s his job to drag
Nicky around the neighbourhood as though
he were a blind master. With his mother increasingly preoccupied, Nicky
begrudgingly assumes the responsibility of looking after Reggie; however,
as Nicky’s life becomes ever more complicated, he realizes that Reggie has
somehow become his new best friend and perhaps the only one he can truly
rely on. With a believable and engrossing story, Nicky Flynn will help younger
readers to understand and deal with their own emotions and feelings when
changes in their lives seem unfair and out of their control, while emphasizing
the power of the unconditional companionship dogs provide.--Connie
