Daisy, age twelve, has died in a car accident. She finds herself in the afterworld, which resembles nothing more than a job center. Her soul is being returned to Earth, but not as a human being--she's returning as a dog. A dog who retains Daisy's thoughts and pluck and is determined to get back to her parents and to get back home. What she doesn't expect is that life as a dog named Ray would come with such worries--and moments of jubilation--as she grows to care for others in a whole new way. --

This was the best book I have ever read in my whole life!!!!! I am soooooo glad that my dad picked this out for me from the library.All of the friendship love trust oh and the right and left door to forget you old self-made my heart warm. Every time I read it I felt like I will have to keep it in a safe place for the rest of my life.Usually, I do not write a review after I read a book but this one was so good that my heart felt like it sank to the bottom of a deep ocean.The book was so amazing I wanted the book to last forever I am really looking forward to reading all of your books and I just want to let you know that if you keep publishing books I will be the one to collect all of them hold on tight to them and never let go.Gold money and silver are valuable to others but to me, this book matters more than any of those things. I hope you read this and think that how much people love your books and be inspired to make more and more.
