I just finished reading the Summer of Riley.It is about a boy who gets a dog at a pound.But the dog chases there neighbor’s horse.So the neighbor calls to have the dog killed for chasing the livestock.The boy is super sad so with his friend he tries to save the dog.They make papers to advertise but there is some mean boys who don’t like dogs so they make posters too. Soon everyone knows about Riley and they are taking sides. Some people don’t want the dog dead others do. The people decide to put the dog to sleep. But at the last minute the dog goes somewhere to chase birds from getting into the engines of planes at the airport.It saves people from plane crashes. So they save the dog. I think the book was great and you should read it.
