Read in February, 2010

This has the feel of a true story. Not true in the sense that one time a dog built a robot friend. True in the sense that friendships change and a re detroyed and like can be terrible. The dog here is the first book character with whom I have been angry in a long long time. Things I want to say to this dog include:
"Why would you even do that!?!?!"
"That is not how you treat people you care about!!!!!"
"You don't even know how terrible you've been, do you?"

This impressive part of this book is that the events at the beginning color the events through the rest of the story in such a way that even the happy, light-hearted experiences later on are shadowed by the tragedy that came before. It's a bright, cheery story, with sad, sad overtones. Probably it just depends on what you're expecting to get out of it.
