Book Overview

Half of me was thinking, Georgina, don't do this. Stealing a dog is just plain wrong. The other half of me was thinking, Georgina, you're in a bad fix and you got to do whatever it takes to get yourself out of it.

Georgina Hayes is desperate. Ever since her father left and they were evicted from their apartment, her family has been living in their car. With her mama juggling two jobs and trying to make enough money to find a place to live, Georgina is stuck looking after her younger brother, Toby. And she has her heart set on improving their situation. When Georgina spots a missing-dog poster with a reward of five hundred dollars, the solution to all her problems suddenly seems within reach. All she has to do is "borrow" the right dog and its owners are sure to offer a reward. What happens next is the last thing she expected.

With unmistakable sympathy, Barbara O'Connor tells the story of a young girl struggling to see what's right when everything else seems wrong.

How to Steal a Dog is a 2008 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year. This title has Common Core connections.

    We read this book aloud in class at school and it was really good, but I read it by myself, too. It's really good and really sad, and I really like Georgina Hayes. In this story Georgina and her little brother, Toby, steal a dog from a family that they think is rich in order to get peon ugh money to stop living in their car and start living in their own apartment again. Just. Few weeks, Georgina's father left. He walked out with all of their money except for two rolled up wads of money. Ever since then, Georgina, Toby, and their mother have been living in their car.. Georgina hates it. It's uncomfortable ad totally embarrassing. Why if her friends see her? What if kids start to suspect something' wrong? Even Georgina's but friend had turned on her. Kids are calling her names, and her teacher is suspecting something's wrong. My name is Leah, ad I give this book one hundred stars.
