A novel by

 
 
For those who have ever felt out of place, this affirming and heartwarming book tells a powerful story of the American South, the love of a dog, and the power of music. Perfect for fans of Maxi's Secrets and How to Steal a Dog, and for anyone who's ever loved a dog.

Whip-smart Ariel doesn’t fit in. Only in the winds of the Blue Ridge Mountains and spring storms that mirror the unhappiness she feels at home.

Her brother understands her, but he’s in Afghanistan. Her father hasn't been the same since George deployed. Her mother focuses on Ariel’s gorgeous sister. When Gloria is selected to be an Apple Blossom Parade princess, Ariel feels even more the outsider and takes to the hills.

There, during a raging storm, Ariel finds a lost dog who leads her to the safety of a cabin and Sergeant Josie, a former Army K-9 handler. Together—with music, dog-dancing, and a storm-child-crazy plan—the three outcasts find themselves.

In this whimsical tale of self-discovery, L. M. Elliott captures the flavor of Virginia’s hunt country and Appalachia, while exploring definitions of beauty and belonging. Storm Dog will make readers proud to dance to their own rhythms.

Genre: Children's Fiction

Praise for this book

"I love Ariel for her resilient spirit! She honors the comforting premise that our sense of belonging in this world comes of extending ourselves to others--human and canine! Laura Elliot has crafted an engaging and relevant story." - Leslie Connor

"Storm Dog approaches like a gentle rain shower and then whirls into your heart like a wild frenzy. Thunder and music, dogs and dancing, Storm Dog is ultimately a story about loyalty, about longing, and no one can teach humans those two things better than a pack of fuzzy frolicking pooches. Storm Dog will make readers dance!" - Kristin O'Donnell Tubb
