How (Not) to Kiss Your Dog by Susan Lash

Jenny’s brother Jack adopts Albert, a rather hyper Jack Rusell terrier. Meanwhile, their grandmother has surgery. Mayhem ensues.

How (Not) to Kiss Your Dog was one of those books that is just meh. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t particularly good either. There were quite a few spelling and grammar errors. One scene, that was really not necessary for the rest of the book, was rather inappropriate for a middle grades book (at school in homeroom a word commonly used as a swear word was used by the “bad” kid in a way he could get away with, but was still intended to get a rise out of everyone). I can’t say I recommend reading this book, but I don’t totally not either. There are a lot of better books out there though, so I’d probably skip it.
