In the book, the story that will make emotional is Georgie’s mother is dead and she has to come to terms with her father marrying Jessica, her stepmother, without forgetting her real mum.

Author Welford has tried to navigate dogs and makes us tick about how to keep the spirit of a loved one alive without drowning in nostalgia. When 12-year-old Georgie makes friends with an eccentric retired scientist, she becomes the subject for a thrilling new experiment: a virtual reality.

Then a deadly virus created through the experiments threatens to kill all the dogs in the country, also Georgie’s beloved dog Mash gets sick. As the world is thrown into chaos, Georgie starts her desperate quest to save every dog on earth and all of humanity and that’s the story.
