Karissa Vacker narrates from the viewpoint of Kai, a stray dog who's been hungry for five days, as he joyfully sniffs a hotdog or fries, then feels fear and sadness as another animal beats him to the food. Vacker nails the changes in Kai's mind as he adjusts to family life after being rescued by Mia and her father. Listeners will be amused by Kai's intense focus and bliss when it comes to bacon or his dismay that humans don't "scent mark," both narrated with humorous earnestness. Vacker narrates more gently as an illness gives Kai's journey a tragic twist, returning him to the streets. The story becomes melodramatic, but listeners will still want to follow Kai's journey to the end. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2022]
