I like to think he doesn't want to leave me."Can a stray dog change the life of a teenage boy? It looks as if Strider can.

Strider changes Leigh on the inside, too, as he finally begins to accept his parents' divorce and gets to know a redheaded girl he's been admiring.With Strider's help, Leigh finds that the future he once hated to be asked about now holds something he never expected: hope.
