Robyn Hunter has been assigned to do community service at an animal shelter as punishment for breaking a store window during an animal rights protest. The problem is, she is afraid of dogs. She arrives at the shelter to find that one of the other volunteers is Nick D’Angelo a boy that she had turned in for stealing money several years ago. Soon, Nick is arrested for a different crime, but Robyn doesn’t think he is guilty. She sets out to prove that Nick didn’t do it.
Last Chance by Norah McClintock is the story of how Robyn overcomes her fears – both of dogs and of Nick. She is a smart girl who gets to the bottom of the mystery of Nicks alleged crime faster than her police office father or her criminal defense attorney mother.
I recommend Last Chance for teens and tweens grade 6 and up.
