"Sanctuary. Place of refuge. Training school. Command center for The Network. Home for strays and rescued dogs. Evie is stuck at The Inn, managed by the stern and mysterious Mrs. Auberchon, although she's supposed to join a training program at The Sanctuary. That's what she signed up for--never mind that she lied and doesn't know the first thing about animals except what she's learned from a breed guide, from the notes someone keeps leaving, and from videos online, like one that asks: Please can more people be nicer to dogs? Once up on the mountain with staffers, volunteers, and her dog students, Evie takes notes on the new things she's learning. Alpha. Forgiveness. Play. Rehabilitation. Like the racing greyhound who refuses to move, the golden retriever who returns every time he's adopted, and the rottweiler who's a hopeless candidate for search-and-rescue, Evie came from a troubled past. She writes: "Rescue. Best. Verb. Ever." As she creates her own training manual, she may even write an entry on herself"
