I strongly recommend "Shiloh" for children. It's a great book, and relatively short, as well, which should make it more accessible for reluctant readers. Those who have a fondness for dogs will be even more inclined to enjoy it. As far as how adults will perceive it, those who appreciate children's literature will like it, for the author writes in an engaging voice, entertaining voice.
Marty and his father return Shiloh to Judd Travers, but the dog runs away again and Marty keeps him hidden. Under Marty's care, Shiloh is attacked by a large German Shepherd and very seriously hurt. In order to save Shiloh's life, Marty and his father rush the doctor to a vet and pay the doctor. The dog will live, but it will have a limp. Nevertheless, Judd wants the dog back. Marty offers to buy the dog, but Judd won't sell.
More tension is added to this already-tense situation when Marty observes Judd breaking the law. But in a beautiful twist, showing that people are more complex than they appear on the surface, the author turns the story toward resolution and a happy but very realistic ending. Highly Recommended!
