Bella loves her boy, Lucas, who rescued her from an abandoned building. Even though she has to hide from the neighbors and learn boring games like No Barks and Go Home, there is nowhere she’d rather be than by Lucas’ side. Then one day Bella is picked up by animal control, and Lucas is forced to send her to a foster home far away.
Bella waits and waits for Lucas to come and get her, but days go by and he does not come. Finally, she realizes what she needs to do – she must Go Home to Lucas – and even four hundred miles of dangerous Colorado wilderness won’t get in her way.
Bella’s Story is a young reader version of the New York Timesand USA Today bestselling novel A Dog’s Way Home by W. Bruce Cameron, which was made into a major motion picture from Sony Pictures. Includes heartwarming illustrations by Richard Cowdrey and a reading and discussion guide at the end of the book.
