    Thank you to the author and Kid Lit Exchange for the free review copy All opinions are my own.I was so looking forward to visiting Josie and the Schilling family in their too small townhouse that s full of love when they aren t in the midst of the usual sibling bickering again and I wasn t disappointed This time all the familiar neighborhood characters return, including Josie s best friends in The Three Stoops crew After she and her friends organized a successful campaign to find a forever home for Hamlet, her little pig, earlier in the year, Josie became well known in her neighborhood as a champion for all animals As a result, the neighborhood veterinarian offered Josie a volunteer job in her clinic for the summer, which she happily accepted One day, while Josie was working, a mysterious box appeared on the porch It contained seven wiggly puppies, along with a note to Josie asking her to please find good homes for the entire bunch Thus begins a two week campaign to find forever homes for every single one of the adorable puppies I loved entering the world of this lively city neighborhood once again I loved that Hamlet was still a big part of the story I loved the relationships among Josie and her friends, including the friendship struggles that are normally a part of the life of every 12 year old I loved the support among the family members, all seven of them, even when there was the to be expected bickering occurring among the five kids li...

    Thank you kidlitexchange and jodi_kendall for sharing this wonderful MG book All opinions are my own I absolutely loved The Unlikely Story of a Pig in the City and have been super anxious to read this sequel It was just as charming and even made me get quite emotional towards the end This one picks up where the first story ended You can definitley follow along, but will get so much if you read book 1 first Josie is now volunteering at the Eastside Veterinary Clinic She is suprised one day to find a box full of seven puppies left on the stoop She takes on the responsibility to foster the cute pups and find them all forever homes within two weeks Once again, the Stoops Crew uses their individual talents to help organize an amazing adoption event Dog lovers are going to have all the feels for this book From the chaos to raising young puppies to saying goodbye to old pets, this one definitley pulls at all those heartstrings It was fun to catch up with the family and favorite cast members again Hamlet even makes a few entertaining appearances Not only is this a charming story, but it also tackles some great teenage topics Body changes, the longing for a cell phone, young love and navigating evolving friendships I love that Josie is in that in between age where she feels slightly annoyed hanging with her younger sister, but not ready to join the older crowd It also covers saying farewell to new friends and tackles the tough d...

    I absolutely loved this heartwarming story of Josie and her large, chaotic family, and the Three Stoops crew The second book explores Josie s relationships and my favorite part is that you get to know the secondary characters in a different way The puppies add a playful spin to the story and made me tear up thinking of my own pets But the real page turner for me is all about how Josie deals with the new challen...
