The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski
Part mystery, part family saga and part love story, The Story of Edgar Sawtelle is an unforgettable novel about the bond between a boy and his dogs. Oprah says this book, written by first-time novelist David Wroblewski, is already a classic. "I think that this is right up there with the greatest American novels ever written," Oprah says. "Up there with Steinbeck and even Harper Lee."
