Sit. Stay. Read!

Launch Day is here!

I am so excited to send Rosalita Gillespie and her dog, Augustus, into the world today.

The novel is the story of a girl who will never give up on her dog, not ever. It's a story of resilience and discovering who you are and where you belong, and finding help in unlikely places.

Here's what the reviewers are saying!
