Synopsis: Seventeen-year-old Heidi Rosenbloom decides against college when she finishes high school and to devote herself to stray dogs instead; but the entrance of photographer Harvey Beaumont into her life adds another dimension.

From School Library Journal: Grade 9-12-- Heidi Rosenbloom, 18, has decided that she is going to say farewell to her divorced parents' expectations of her and to all future romantic relationships with men. Heidi, earlier featured in Wersba's Just Be Gorgeous (1988) and Wonderful Me (1989, both Harper) , shuns college and decides instead to devote her life to her one passion--dogs. While her mother is gallivanting across Europe, Heidi moves into a vacated barbershop and creates Dog Rescue, Inc. Then, while chasing a stray Irish Setter, she meets Harvey Beaumont, also 18, who bears a striking resemblance to Truman Capote and whom readers first met in The Carnival in My Mind (Harper, 1982). Heidi resists her attraction to Harvey because of her two previous failed romantic mishaps, but three is Heidi's number--her friendship with Harvey matures into a healthy, loving, and sexual relationship. Wersba's fans will recognize familiar territory--eccentric and lonely characters marching to a different drummer, the right dose of humor, a fascination with photography, and a credible love story. They may also note some minor stretching of reality; the issue of a teen's safety alone in New York City, for example, is never addressed. Nevertheless, young adults will identify with this coming-of-age novel, for the emotions, voice, and characterizations all ring true. --Jennifer Kraar, St. Joseph's University, Philadelphia
