Joshua Reed is used to moving around since his dad became an Army
recruiter and the Vietnam War broke out. But their newest home, in the
mountains of Pennsylvania, feels special somehow. Josh has started to
make a new friend, his dad has finally allowed him to get a dog, and
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 the new army
recruiter. And when a few late-night disturbances all point to Jack, it
will be up to Josh to fight for his dog, his family, and his new home.
