Marty will do anything to save his new friend Shiloh in this Newbery Medal-winning novel from Phillis Reynolds Naylor.
The second book in the trilogy introduced by Shiloh, the Newbery Medal-winning classic. Even though Shiloh now belongs to Marty, his worries are far from over. Judd, the dog's original owner, is back to drinking hard and being reckless with his rifle.
DOES EVERYONE DESERVE A SECOND CHANCE?
Marty's parents think so -- even Judd Travers, whose history of drinking and violence keeps Marty from completely trusting that his beloved dog, Shiloh, will always be safe from Judd.
With his dad's help, Kevin overcomes his fear of the King of the Playground who has threatened to tie him to the slide, put him in a deep hole, or put him in a cage with bears.
Do not panic.
It's a scary world out there.
Life, Alice McKinley feels, is just one big embarrassment. Here she is, about to be a teenager and she doesn't know how. It's worse for her than for anyone else, she believes, because she has no role model. Her mother has been dead for years. Help and advice can only come from her father, manager of a music store, and her nineteen-year-old brother, who is a slob.
