How to Steal a Dog - Barbara O'Connor

When her family is forced to live in the car, Georgina thinks the only way to help is to steal a dog for the reward money. She soon realizes her plan has some unexpected surprises and difficulties.

I have to be honest. I LOVE love LOvE Barbara O'Connor. She was ICCSD's visiting author in 2008-09, and she was just a peach. How to Steal a Dog is a great book, and Fame and Glory in Freedom, Georgia is super, too.
Ms. O'Connor's blog, Greetings from Nowhere, is one I read every day. I often leave comments as well. I really like how Barbara shares her writing experiences - the good and the bad. The third graders in 3M read this book last year in guided reading, and enjoyed it immensely. What are you thinking? Am I pressuring you if I tell you this should be the first title to read? :-)

I really liked this book at first i didn't want to read it but then I started to read it and i couldn't put it down


CJM and Anonymous and HEF, Other than the fact that you like dogs, why else did you like this book so much? I liked it because I so wanted the main character (I can't remember her name right now!) to just have a home. I kept reading in hopes that she would find it in the story.
