Everything in Zanna's family seems to be on hold. Her father is far away. She lives with her sister and mother in a house that doesn't belong to them; all their furniture is crammed into one room and covered with sheets.Is that why Zanna is drawn to Moss? He is a Border Collie, a working sheepdog whose life is on hold, too, since his owner was paralyzed by a stroke and cannot speak. No one else on the farm his time for Moss, so he is kept on a chain in the back of the old cow barn.Zanna tries to befriend Moss, to free him and restore his spirit. But he cares only for his master, who can no longer respond to him. Both man and dog teach her about the power of trust and determination. But who has the power to keep Moss from being sold and sent away? Betty Levin's answer comes as a welcome and totally satisfying surprise, and Zanna and Moss will find a warm place in the hearts of young readers.
