Emily O'Reilly is an eighth-grader who loves everything to do with Search-and-Rescue. Her dream is to have her own search and rescue dog, and she goes to work making jewelry to sell in order to buy a dog. Little did she know that her jewelry would get her involved with a case of jewelry theft! Emily must prove her innocence and restore her reputation. The story takes her and the Search-and-Rescue dogs on a series of adventures.
This was a quick and enjoyable read. It kept my 12-year-old daughter's attention and she found it entertaining. Since her age group is the desired audience, I will give her opinion. The story was engaging and fun. Some of the characters were strange, such as the group of native Americans and their religious beliefs. She found the ending unsatisfactory since some issues were left unresolved. Still, the book integrated the Christian faith of a teenager into an interesting story. Recommended especially for girls. 4 out of 5 stars.

I am an apprentice of Jesus and love Him very much! I have a wonderful family - husband Bob and two kiddos. Music is part of who I am... I love to play the piano and trumpet, and do a little guitar playing too. I teach private music lessons, lead worship at church, and am a member of the Kalamazoo Concert Band. I also love to read... you can check out some of my reviews on the blog!
