“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:
Age Level: 10-14
Olivia has just about had it with the popular kids at school. She and her friends have done nothing to deserve humiliating pranks and mean name-calling, but that doesn’t stop queen bee Brynne from tormenting them. If only Olivia’s classmates were more like the dogs she helps her grandmother train—poorly behaved, but improvable. Then Olivia hatches a brilliant plan: she and her friends will modify their tormentors’ behavior with the same kind of training that works on dogs. Using cues and responses, distractions and rewards, gets better results than anyone could have guessed. Soon, Olivia and her friends have replaced Brynne as alpha-dogs. But will popularity get Olivia what she really wants?

This is absolutely adorable! I will DEF read this. Maybe I will pick up tips on training my cat loving Pitt Bull Bella 😉
Bella got “jumped” by a tiny brown Chihuahua today named Max!
Max ran at Bella & I thought he was going to be nice and out of the blue he nipped Bella and kept snarling at her!
That is why leash laws are in place ppl!
Thanx GAWD Bella is NOT your stereotypical Pitt..
Here is a link to my WOW, it is def diff than your type of read but it may be kinda interesting.
