Hurricane Dog
By: Sunny Weber

*REVIEW* ❤❤❤❤❤
I read this book with my ten year old son, and he has written his own review. I will first give my thoughts.
This is the second book I have read by Sunny Weber, and I have noticed underlying parallels that are important and relevant. Animal cruelty is a big problem, and pets are casually tossed aside like so much garbage. It

I read and loved Sunny Weber’s A Dog At The Gate. It brought out all the feels and plenty of tears, so I prepared myself for Hurricane Dog by keeping a supply of tissues close at hand.

Life is good for Gator, a pitbull mix. Adopted by Gavin and his parent’s, he is sheltered and loved. And soon is joined by a special companion, Magnolia, a rescue from a puppy mill. Life is grand, until a hurricane strikes and the dogs have to be left behind in the evacuation. From here on, I suggest you grab the t

Gator's Story Looks Through a Dog's Eyes into a Real World. As readers follow Gator's journey--the author presents a lot of real-world reality and discussion points even as Gator grows and lives through happy times with a loving family. Readers learn a lot about Gavin's life and the facts of the world at play around Gator's family and environment. Like the other books in this series, the author doesn't sugarcoat the problems of the world--and readers should expect an emotional journey to the end ...more

Hurricane Dog: A Tale of Betrayal, Redemption & Change by Sunny Weber does not follow Max, but instead follows Pit bull mix Gator and puppy mill survivor Magnolia. This is a great book for middle school aged children as it helps them to understand what animals can go through when abandoned whether because of a natural disaster or for other reasons. I could not help, but really connect to poor Gator and hope that he could find a good family worthy of trust.
