Eleven year old Danny says: "This is the story about my sister, Anne, who died. Itís also the story of Bonnie, my dog, who died, tooóor rather he got killed. Anne and Bonnie are tied in together. Because of them something has happened to our family, something good. How can that be good? Thatís what Iíd like to know. Thatís what Iím trying to figure out and write about." An added bonus to this book is that the art on the end papers is by Andrew Wyeth.
