The Art of Racing in the Rain  by Garth Stein

Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human. He has educated himself by watching television extensively, and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an
up-and-coming race car driver.

Through Denny, Enzo has gained tremendous insight into the human condition. On the eve of his death, Enzo takes stock of his life, recalling all that he and his family have been through: the sacrifices Denny has made.  In the end, despite what he sees as his own limitations, Enzo comes through heroically to preserve the Swift family, holding in his heart the dream that Denny will become a racing champion with Zoë at his side. 

A heart-wrenching but deeply funny and ultimately uplifting story of family, love, loyalty, and hope, The Art of Racing in the Rain is a beautifully crafted and captivating look at the wonders and absurdities of human life…as only a dog could tell it.
