Book Description

Growing up is hard in 1972, especially if you’re 12-year-old Katherine Rose “Mosie” Bitmen. While praying her best friend’s dead aunt out of purgatory and keeping that old witch, Mary Worth, from appearing in the bathroom mirror, Mosie is sentenced to yet another month of rosary, three times a day. The reason: fighting “The Perfects,” St. Anne's all-girl gang. Then, just when she thinks life couldn't get any worse, it does.

When her father moves the family to her Native American mother's hometown in the Wisconsin Northwoods, Mosie forges a friendship with a dog that's gone wild in the swamps. To save the dog's life and that of her soon to be born wolf-pups, Mosie has to make a decision of a lifetime.

Will she embrace her quest and seek out the legendary Dog Island located next to the Apostle Islands, somewhere out in the cold deep waters of Lake Superior? Or will she come to her senses before it’s too late?

5.0 out of 5 stars a great story, a heartwarming tale! May 7, 2013
Dog island touched my heart! It's a great story about growing up in a time when things seemed simpler than they really were. The author brought her characters to life for me, and I felt like I knew them well, in the end. I highly recommend this heartwarming and great story about this little girl and her search, for Dog Island. There's a little bit of Dog Island, in all our lives.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Dog August 17, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Spoiler alert: very sensitive depiction of the unraveling - and re-raveling if you will - of a family, largely through the eyes of a twelve-year-old. Been there, done that! It hurts. You live. Well-crafted story. Also the longest gestation of a human on record. (The little girl was twelve at the beginning of the book and thirteen and a half at the end and the mom's baby STILL hadn't been born!)

Ann was able to capture my attention just enough in the beginning of the book to make me want to continue to read, the middle had me captive and the ending brought tears to my eyes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book June 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book took me right back to my childhood. A time when kids had imaginations and weren't afraid to use them, when we were free and outside all day every day when we weren't in school. And then we started growing up and found out stuff that might have torn our world apart, but we survived and were stronger for it.

Do you know how much I loved this book? I was in Kenya when I started reading it, and I couldn't put it down. How many times have you kept your nose in a book when you were in a foreign country with a million other things to do? Seriously, I couldn't put this book down.

Not only did the plot and the characters keep me riveted, but the descriptions took me right to that place in the Northwoods.
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. Ann, I cannot wait to read what you come up with next.
