A quirky and deeply affecting charmer of a novel, Lily and the Octopus is funny, wise, and utterly original in its exploration of what it means to love any mortal creature. This brave little dachshund will capture your heart, as will her prickly, tenderhearted, and irresistible owner. Don’t miss their adventures together.
To tell you anything of the plot would spoil the experience. Just read it.
I haven’t read The Art of Racing in the Rain, but I’m hearing and reading that the two books have a similar concept. It definitely needs to be on my to-read list.
