A fantastic historical fiction that my daughter chose for her 5th grade reading assignment. I read it too and highly recommend it for either adult or child. A well written, thought provoking and thoroughly moving story that brought me to tears and has stayed with me weeks after I finished it.

a very touching book that kids should read in order to see how hard it is in the world of ours (it's not easy)

I had previously passed this by because I didn't want to read an unhappy ending, which I suspected would be the case. But I kept coming back to it (I loved the name) and finally purchased it. I absolutely loved this book; it is a marvelous animal (dog) story that will linger long after the reader has finished; it is informative about the Viet Nam era, as well as our government's policy of considering these noble animals as disposable equipment; it is about growing up, and delves into a family's interraction too. I am in my 60's, but would recommend this book to readers of any age.

Second, there is no stronger adolescent bond than a boy and his dog. Third, war is tragic, hurting innocent victims far away from the battle front. Sherlock helps the reader feel the highs and lows of a young man experiencing his first dog, his first love, and his first war.
I absolutely love this book. It is my favorite book of all time. I first read this book back in middle school. I checked it out of the library my whole 7th grade year and have been looking for it ever since. It truly is an amazing story.
