A heart-warming story of a dog’s journey together with its family from Siberia to New York City in search of greener pastures. Gina, our main character who is a dog, gets to see a lot of wonderful and strange things along the way. Living in a new city, far from her best friend, Gina gets lonely but eventually she gets the hang of the place and come to like his new home and new friends.

I especially like the part where Gina writes a letter to her best friend who is also a dog; and also the part where she finally decided to introduce herself to her neighbors and made friends with them.

I’m living in a foreign country now, away from my friends and I can relate to Gina’s story and I’m very happy that things have turned out great for her.

It can be lonely moving to a new city, but taking that tiny step to say hello and be nice to people, great friendships await. In this book, Gina shows that you have the power to make things happen if you believe in yourself.
