This will be a short review, full of constructive criticisms.

First, the grammar and punctuation needs a hard edit. Quotations were backwards every single time. Sometimes there were periods in the middle of sentences. “Said,” was capitalized every time and used far too much.

Second, I question the age group for which this is written. I can’t really tell who it’s directed at but, I found some of the content questionable. Like Roger bragging how he has no trouble with the ladies and hitting on a female labrador in heels and lipstick, only to be slapped in response because his come on was well, basic.

Third, it could really use more of a focus on the therapy aspect of the story. I think it would be great to teach kids about the world of therapy and therapy dogs and what they actually accomplish.

There is a lot of possibility with this story with some more work and some fine tuning.

  1. Nice job with a very fair review and good use of constructive criticism. 🙂 Like you mentioned in your other recent post, it can be so hard reviewing something that wasn’t really your fancy. I think you did a good job not going for the jugular with this one. 😉

      1. Haha yeahhh, I think I can see why based off of what you wrote and what I checked out about it on goodreads. 😛 You did well, though, holding back! 😀
