When Joshua Reed and his father, an Air Force recruiter, move to a new town in Pennsylvania, Josh starts to make a new friend: a dog named Jack.
Jack—with his strange glowing ears and the way he seems to understand Josh’s feelings-is like no other dog Josh has ever seen. But in Vietnam-era America, conflict is never far away—even on the homefront. When a local boy is killed overseas, the town turns on Josh and his dad, and it will be up to Josh to fight for his new home and save his dog.
