The books I read for this project are A Corner of the Universe, Here Today and Everything For a Dog.
The story starts out with Ellie remembering when all the bad things started happening. The first bad thing was John F. Kennedy's assassination. Doris started to fall apart. She was a failing model and actress. She tried out for many roles, such as a Circus Girl. Once the president was killed, Doris realized that you don't know when your last day is, so you must live in the present. Then, Doris leaves her whole life in Spectacle and moves to New York. She tells the family that she must establish herself. Then life ends up being worse than before.
Over all, this book was ok so I gave it 3.5 stars.
Bone is trying to find a family that will love him and he ends up finding a cute little town. He decides it's a good idea to stay there. While that is going on Henry finds out the reason he can't get a dog. His father has bad history with a dog he once had. Henry's father doesn't want Henry to have the same despair he had. Henry discovers that there is a chance he could train a stray dog and then keep it. But it will take some convincing.
This book has some good parts but I wouldn't recommended it. I gave it 2.5 stars.
