Summary
The magic of this novel is in the read, and we don't want to spoil it by giving away too many details. We can tell you that this is a story about that special someone: the one you trust, the one you cant live without. For Ted Flask, that someone special is his aging companion Lily, who happens to be a dog
Summary
Lily is a short, happy 12-year-old who loves mint chocolate-chip ice cream. Ted is a fortyish writer who's been in therapy since he split with his last boyfriend. He also loves Lily -- his dachshund -- with all his heart, and is unable to bear the brain tumor that is stealing Lily's sight and will eventually take her life. By turns heartbreaking and hilarious (Lily's contributions to the conversation are priceless), this debut is a by-turns funny, loving, and quirky account of the love between humans and their pets. Have tissues handy. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
