One stubborn girl sets off a quest to steal back her dog in this witty, poignant, and endlessly perceptive exploration of what it means to do the right thing.



Lolo is stuck in summer school with a teacher whose out to get her while her family is still reeling from her grandfather’s death. Even his dog is mourning, howling outside all night and every night. Finally, lovable old Hank is sent to a farm across the lake that takes foster dogs. And it’s all Lolo’s fault.



Lolo knows she has to get Hank back. In a tippy canoe, Lolo crosses the almost dried out lake to steal her dog back. But she runs into Noah, a student in her summer school class and Hank's new owner—and he loves Hank as much as she does.



As Lolo’s plan unravels and her uneasy alliance with Noah grows into a friendship, the question of what’s best for Hank becomes muddier. Can Lolo manage to do the right thing—for once?



Itch author Polly Farquhar returns to Ohio with a tale of a bold, stubborn girl searching for answers to tough questions in all the wrong places. Fans of Gary Schmidt will love Farquhar’s blend of honesty, humor, and heart.
