Girl with a White Dog

by Anne Booth - £6.99  Catnip Publishing Ltd (2014)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781846471810 | ISBN 10: 1846471818

Jessie is fed up: her dad's business has gone bust; they've had to leave behind their family home; and her cousin Fran - who used to be her best friend - is ignoring her, in favour of the cool crowd at school. An unexpected bright spot comes in the shape of Snowy, the beautiful white puppy she discovers at Gran's house after school one day, but even her excitement about finally having a dog is clouded when Gran becomes confused and ill, and starts saying strange things. Why is she so worried about Snowy being shot?
When Jessie begins to study the rise of fascism in 1930s Germany at school, the past and the present unexpectedly begin to collide. Gradually, Jessie comes to realise that Gran is haunted by something terrible from her past, which no one else knows about. Can Jessie help her set the events of the past to rest? And what might Gran's story mean for Jessie, and those around her?
