He can't lose all his reading time, so he starts a club. A club he intends to be the only member of. After all, reading isn't a team sport, and no one would want to join something called the Losers Club, right? But as more and more kids find their way to Alec's club -- including his ex-friend turned bully and the girl Alec is maybe starting to like -- Alec notices something. Real life might be messier than his favorite books, but it's just as interesting.

But Gus acts so differently than anyone Chester has ever met. He never wants to pet Chester, and sometimes he doesn't even want Chester in the room.

Because after all, Gus is now his person.In the spirit of beloved classics like Because of Winn-Dixie, Shiloh, and Old Yeller, Cammie McGovern's heartfelt novel—told from Chester's point of view—explores the extraordinary friendship between a child and a dog with a poignant and modern twist.
