The Art of Racing in the Rain
Enzo is a good dog, and he's preparing to be a human being in his next life. If not for the lack of opposable thumbs (an obsession with him), he'd just about be ready now. In the meantime he does his best to support the Swift family, especially his master Denny, a professional race car driver with a special talent for racing in the rain. Denny is faced with tragedy: when his wife dies he is forced to fight for custody of his daughter. Enzo narrates all of this from a dog's perspective (informed by lots of television watching), favoring racing metaphors. It gives the story a unique perspective, both heartbreaking and heartwarming (often at the same time).
