Summary: Emily has dreams of drowning. Night after night, she's being sucked under - until the third night. She realizes it's not just a dream. It's really happening to someone - or something. On the rocky shore outside her house, Emily finds a large white dog. He's barely alive, but she's determined to save him. She can feel his pain - and his determination to live.

With Emily's help, the dog is brought to the vet and nursed back to life. Her presence is enough to improve his condition dramatically, to bring him back from the brink. The vet has never seen anything like it, but it's the most natural thing in the world for Emily, and also for the dog she's named Zack... it's as though he's been her dog for years.

But is the bond between the girl and her dog something more? She can see what he sees, feel what he feels. And Zack seems to be able to read her mind, too. Is it possible that together, Emily and Zack can do more than read each other's minds? Can they turn their powers to helping other people?

Review: Definitely a children's book, but quite cute. I liked the instant connection between Emily and Zack. It was as if the author couldn't quite decide on how old Emily was supposed to be though. According to the book she was still a couple of months away from turning 12, but she acted a lot older than that. Is it common for students that age to have books like "Jane Eyre" and "Wuthering Heights" on their summer reading lists?

Cute book and a quick read.
