Meet one funny dog - Enzo, the lovable mutt who tells this story. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: most dogs love to chase cars, but Enzo longs to race them. He learns about racing and the world around him by watching TV and by listening to the words of his best friend, Denny, an up-and-coming race car driver, and his daughter, Zo; his constant companion. Enzo finds that life is just like being on the racetrack - it isn't simply about going fast. And, applying the rules of racing to his world, Enzo takes on his family's challenges and emerges a hero. In the end, Enzo holds in his heart the dream that Denny will go on to be a racing champion with his daughter by his side. For theirs is an extraordinary friendship - one that reminds us all to celebrate the triumph of the human (and canine) spirit .
This is a special adaptation for young people of the acclaimed New York Times best-selling adult novel The Art of Racing in the Rain.

Young Adult Adaptation
Beware prior to downloading - this is not the original version of the book, The Art of Racing in the Rain. It was good, but my BF and I downloaded it for a long trip, and I was disappointed when I noticed the modified storyline. Having never read the original, he truly enjoyed this adaptation.

What did you love best about Racing in the Rain?
This version is a cleaner version for the whole family of a great story. I much prefer this version to the original.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Enzo, of course. Made me wonder what my dogs think of me.
What does Henry Leyva bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
His inflections and intonations are perfect. I love his performance.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Too many to name.
