Review

Praise for Nobody's Dog:

"Ria Voros has done a really good job of exploring grief in a very real way . . . there is tons here to think about, even as you're busy enjoying a darn good dog story . . . I would have loved this book when I was a kid." —CBC British Columbia

"Nanaimo resident Ria Voros tackles grief and loss through the eyes of a 13-year-old and his canine companion in her powerful debut novel, Nobody's Dog." —Nanaimo Daily News

"There are no drastic changes, no wise mentor figure appears to supply guidance or save the day . . . There is, however, a good deal of underlying affection between characters and several attempts towards friendship, healing, and communication, again, as in real life." —CM Magazine

From the Author

A note from the author, Ria Voros:

I'm a dog lover and for years I've wanted to write a story about one. A while ago I read the true story of a pair of huskies that roamed together at night, one leaving his home to pick up the other on their way to go exploring. I loved the idea and wanted to create a relationship like that. But instead of another dog, Jakob popped into my head, and he seemed the perfect fit as Chilko's wandering companion. As the story unfolded, I realized Jakob had a lot to learn from Chilko, not only about dogs, but also about life. I went through the same process when I adopted my dog, Pender, from a shelter. He challenged me, taught me patience, compassion and what it means to be responsible for an animal. In the end, both Jakob and I are better people because of the relationships we've had with our dogs.

Nobody's Dog is a slim novel that packs a real emotional punch: it's about a boy called Jakob and the friendship he strikes up with a stray dog who turns up at his window each night and leads him on a series of nocturnal adventures across the city. Jakob's parents were killed in a car crash a few months before, and as Jakob and this mysterious malamute Chilko roam the streets, the truth of what happened that night begins to become clear.

This is an incredibly powerful book about grief and hope, but it's also very sharp and funny. Also, is it possible to have a crush on a dog? I dreaded coming to the end of the book and not having Chilko around anymore!

Highly recommended.
