Girl of the Year


Author: Ann Howard Creel; Illustrator: Doron Ben-Ami

  • AGES 8 - 12 
  • Genre Fiction
Nicki Fleming is a natural with animals. When the chance to train a service dog comes up, she just can't say "No," even if it means taking on more responsibility and having to give up some of the things she loves doing.
When Sprocket the puppy turns out to be a handful, it takes all of Nicki's compassion to continue his training. She knows that one day Sprocket will make someone else's life better, and that makes all the difference.
The True Story section at the back of the book focuses on real girls who have experience training service dogs.
