Review: Daisy Fellows, 12, dies suddenly and returns to earth as a dog, but can still remember her life as a human. Now she is known as Ray and must adapt to communicating to people as an animal--which causes great frustration because all they hear is barking. Eventually she is found by Pip, a homeless boy who is looking for his father. Daisy/Ray is devoted to Pip and determined to help him find his father. As the story develops, Ray slowly loses her human memories, but her new family with Pip and the friendships they develop make for a heart-warming story well worth the read.
