Georgina's whole world has changed over night. Her father leaves her family, forcing them to move into their car, becoming homeless. Georgina hides this from everyone in school, even her best friend, although people have been figuring it out anyways. Georgina decides that stealing a dog would get the money they need to get a house again. Throughout the book, Georgina is faced with tough decisions of right and wrong, many seeming to be both. How to Steal a Dog is an excellent book to use as a fifth grade book club book. I would talk about the difference between inference and prediction and how these are useful tools while reading books.
