FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
This book is all about two dogs. Draco and Daria. Both of the pups are just dogs, but at the same time, they are special. They bring people together. Draco is the dog that belongs to everyone. Daria is a small pup that gets lost and manages to make it home.
I loved this story. It was simple, yet it was one that I laughed at and one that I cried at. Let me tell you, grab the tissues. Each pup had its small tale, and this story showed so much about family. It was a great tale start to finish. If you love animals, you will love this book.
