Description



About the Book



Newly orphaned and living with the half sister she hardly knows, twelve-year-old Olive rediscovers her hope when she starts training a guide dog puppy.



Book Synopsis



A poignant, hopeful story of a girl and her puppy.

Olive Hudson desperately wants a dog. But that doesn't seem to be a possibility right now. Newly orphaned, she's moving in with the half sister she hardly knows and their life is too chaotic to include a dog. But then something wonderful happens: Olive gets a chance to raise Lumie, a guide dog puppy. Discipline. Rules. Lots of hugs. Only the best of the best puppies continue on to become guide dogs, and of course Olive wants Lumie to be chosen. But if she is, that means that Olive will lose her. Once again, the incomparable Joan Bauer tells a touching story that is full of heart and warmth and unabashed idealism.



Review Quotes




Praise for Raising Lumie!

*While imparting solid information about guide dogs and their work, Bauer (Soar) employs her well-honed skill at depicting believable, evolving relationships that are rooted in love and nurtured with encouragement. She balances Olive's big emotions and funny, forthright narration with the light humor of secondary characters and a satisfying, big-hearted ending.--Publishers Weekly, starred review

*Bauer once again works her magic, crafting memorable characters overflowing with courage and kindness who react in believable--but also admirable--ways to the challenges in their lives . . . The pitch-perfect ending will leave readers both smiling and crying--simultaneously.--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

If the Hallmark channel produced children's movies, they'd option Bauer's latest in a flash. . . Don't resist. Just give in and let the wholesome story wash over you and work its magic. . . . A gratifying tale with realistic life lessons and literal puppy love.--Booklist
