Dog Walk Discoveries (August 2016)
The Higher Power of Lucky (2007 Newbery winner).
"Lucky," Lincoln explained, "people see that sign and they think, 'Huh. Slow children. Kids around here aren't too smart.' Or else they think, 'Gosh, these Hard Pan kids don't move too fast. Must be 'cause of the heat.'"

nothing is going to get better. It's not.
