I Loved the Book "Cowboy & Wills"

First of all, I wasn't able to read it cover to cover in a timely manner, it took me quite awhile to get around to finishing it, like I wanted to due to distractions and having to care for Griffin daily just like having to do right now as I write this post. Griffin keeps interrupting me and it is difficult to concentrate so this post might not be as stellar as I had hoped it might be. Please keep this in mind as you read this review.

This was an amazing book and as I sit here and think about it, it brings tears to my really moved me! If you enjoy reading about autism this is a great book for you because it Wills is a little boy who has high functioning autism and the story portrays him as he grows and progresses. He grows up with his precious companion Cowboy the golden retriever who loves him unconditionally and they both capture your heart. Wills is a charming little guy who loves animals and has quite a menagerie of his own but Cowboy is his favorite and they do everything together. Monica Holloway is the mother who writes the story and does an incredible job doing so as she chronicles the days of school and family life in a most interesting and eloquent manner. I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone because it will touch your heart and because it is an unforgettable story of a boy and his dog that is beyond comparison.

This book was sent to me so that I could write this review and I am so glad that I had the chance to read it and to write this review. It is not often that I get a chance to read such wonderful books that move me and that I find so emotional. The fact that this was a true story made it all that much more heart wrenching and I look forward to the next book.

I will check this out Lora as I am currently unable to finish a book unless it is about aspergers or autism. Sad I know!
