The Art of Racing in the Rain

321 pages; Harper Perennial
Realistic, no. Really, really original, yes. This novel, narrated by a dog named Enzo who goes from being a house pet to riding shotgun with his owner—an aspiring race car driver and widower dad—sucks you in from page one. Uplifting, unexpectedly heartbreaking, a canine classic.
