Chestnut (American Dog)

We rated this book:


Meg has always wanted a dog. When she finds a stray dog that she names Chestnut caught on the fence of her family’s property, Meg knows this dog is the one for her. Meg’s family owns a Christmas tree farm that is already tight on money, so she knows her parents will never let her keep Chestnut. With the help of her friend Colton, she manages to smuggle Chestnut into an abandoned shed on the farm. Meg knows she’ll have to keep Chestnut a secret until she can come up with a genius plan to save the farm and convince her parents to let her keep Chestnut. Should be easy, right?

Meg’s life is turned upside down when most of the trees are stolen and it looks like Chestnut’s owner might be found. Meg knows that together, she and her dog can save the farm. Do they have what it takes to save the farm? Or will the farm close, and Meg will lose her life’s work and Chestnut along with it?

I liked this book because it was a sweet story featuring relatable characters and an awesome dog! I hope more books in this series come out soon!
