ShadowShadow by Aris Austin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was hardly able to shake away my tears while reading this story about a shelter dog named Shadow.The author does a terrific job of putting the voice of a helpless dog into the narrative that flows very naturally and flawlessly. But mind you that this is not an anthropomorphic story of a cute dog, but a testimony of humanity against the forced death on shelter dogs – especially old, aging dogs – that have lost chances of being adopted. Shadow by Aris Austin has contextualized the awareness of animal rescues in our society.
