Charlotte's dad just got a St. Bernard, and at first he and the rest of the family was taking care of it. And Charlotte liked it that way--she's not a fan of dogs. However after a few weeks the "newness" wears off and everyone is ignoring the dog, who stays chained up in the yard. Charlotte feels bad for him and starts taking care of him, even though she doesn't enjoy it. Soon she comes up with a plan She secretively comes up with a plan to buy the dog from her dad and give him away to a St. Bernard rescue so that he can find a family who will truly love him. But Charlotte has to figure out a way to make $325 in just a few months. Plus, does she really want to give up the dog?

I thought I had this book figured out from the beginning, but I was wrong! The beginning and middle of the book are kind of boring, but the ending is great!

A good read for girls 9+.
