OLDER FICTION
Monninger, Joseph

Whippoorwill

(2) YA Dog Wally's owner has tied him to a post outside in the freezing-cold winter. Sixteen-year-old neighbor Clair sets out to free him and finds an unexpected ally in the dog-owner's seventeen-year-old son, Danny, whose tough exterior hides a sensitive soul and whose abusive father has made his life miserable. In Monninger's affecting but never mawkish story, the characters are fully realized.
