This  heartwarming and exciting dog mystery follows the adventurous turns of River and Celia, who are about to enter high school in the fall, when they find a scared and injured pit-mix and also unearth dog bones and out-of-state tags in the woods. Celia, who attempts to bond with this fearful dog, is a victim of bullying and stranger-danger online and suffers with anxiety that, at times, paralyzes her, while River is faced with the decision on whether or not to leave his beloved rescue horse at a farm where he volunteers, since Joey, a foster boy he is friends with, has bonded with it.
