Content descriptions

General Note:
Includes excerpt from the author's Saving Marty.
Summary, etc.:
"Seventh-grader Ben, always an outsider, is led into a deep friendship with Halley, who is being treated for cancer, by the special dog he and his adoptive mother take in." -- Provided by publisher.
Why bother making friends when they just end up leaving or hurting you somehow? Ben Coffin would prefer to stick with his favorite fictional characters, thank you very much. But that's before he meets Halley - yes, like the comet. Once Halley convinces Ben to write a book with her, the two of them (plus the dog Ben rescues along the way) dive into an adventure full of imagination, discovering together the importance of friendship and what it truly means to be home. -- from back cover.
