Chasing Augustus9 - 12 Fiction
Augustus barks again and again from inside the barn and my heart thumps out of my chest to go find him.
Rosie’s led a charmed life. It’s true her mother abandoned them when Rosie was just a baby, but her dad’s all she ever needed. But now that her father’s unwell, Rosie lives with her tough-as-nails grandfather.
Then her beloved dog goes missing.?Rosie must get Augustus back. He may be a big, sloppy dog and her grandpa Harry says he can’t live in the flat, but he forgets how much you can love a dog. He is the true-blue friend of Rosie’s soul and she will do anything to find him. She doesn’t need any help, especially not from Philippe, the new boy downstairs, because he is useless and looks like a puppy about to be kicked. She’ll have to face Swanson, who never talks to anyone and always knows when you’ve stolen her apples. Rosie is about to embark on an incredible adventure …
A gripping story of a feisty, unsinkable, unstoppable, unforgettable girl who knows she’s a fighter … if she can only figure out who’s already on her side.
