I really liked this book because it's about a girl and her talent with sled dogs Lara had a vision about the new female dog The dog was going to have her babies that night She told her father and he told her not to believe her visions During the course of the story she has visions and it's actually really cool because I know everything that's going to happen before the rest of her family One of the dogs die and she is devastated She is a very good trainer and super sweet to the dogs This is a really good book She trained great hunting dogs Her dad didn't have much faith in her I would recommend this book to anyone who likes dogs

Anted as her father decides to make her brother the next kennel steward Going against her father's wishes and becoming increasingly sure of her special gift of understanding these incredible dogs Lara risks eve. I picked this up at random from the library I like Russia I like dogs and I like a strong willed female lead so why notI'm aware that this is young adultwritten for kids But I wasn't very impressed with the writing I personally don't believe you have to write down to kids so they can understand I think that removes the learning aspect of reading at that ageIt was a cool idea and a decent little story A bit cliche for my taste but oh well I would have liked the visions a lot better if Lara had been special and uniue in having them though rather than it ending up being some weird genetic thing supposedly passed down through their family for ages but also banned from use That was all kinda weirdBut A for effort
