What if a wheezing, sneezing, allegedly house-trained, ticking time bomb of an orphan pug is the key to helping a family feel at home again, after an arsonist set their house and life on fire? If you asked me, I would have said it s a bad idea; we can do better. Unfortunately no one asked me, and The Pug List is my family s story.

In the fire s aftermath of insurance battles royal, rebuilding plans, parenting in the face of life s hard questions and a scorching case of post-traumatic stress, now is absolutely the worst possible time to adopt a dog. But to Alison s seven-year-old daughter, Eden, it s the perfect time and The Relentless Campaign begins.

Until one day Alison peeks inside Eden s diary dubbed The Pug List and realizes in one fell swoop that her girl s heart is on the line, and resistance is futile ( The pugs make me happy FOREVER. ).

Enter Outrageous Oliver, and the hilarity, healing, and irresistible hope that follows.
