Lila and Hadley

We rated this book:


After her mom goes to jail, Hadley goes to live with her sister; Hadley doesn’t think she’ll have a good time. On top of moving away from her friends and her school, she is also slowly going blind. Hadley spends her days sulking in her bedroom, refusing to talk to anybody.

But one day, Beth takes Hadley to the shelter where she works. There she meets Lila. Lila is an abandoned pit bull who won’t react to anyone at the shelter who tries to play with her. She comes over to sit by Hadley, which isn’t much, but more than the workers at the shelter could do. When Beth asks her to train Lila, Hadley reluctantly agrees. But training Lila is harder than Hadley thought. Lila is very stubborn and won’t obey orders in front of anyone besides Hadley. Moreover, Hadley must navigate friendships, mobility classes, and what it truly means to forgive.

This book takes a fabulous look at a beautiful friendship between a girl and a dog.
