NOTES FROM THE DOG by Gary Paulson

At the start of summer, Finn declares to speak to only ten people until the start of school. He thinks it will be easy, until he meets Joanna, a college student and cancer patient with an electric personality and a proposition for him--to plant a garden in his own backyard for money!

Notes from the Dog helped me further understand the struggle a person has when fighting cancer, and how important it is for them to have support from friends and family.

The book is definitely intended for a younger age group, so as a high school senior I found it boring.

Recommended for Grades 6 - 10.
