Stone-Faced Boy, The ePub download

Only his strange great-aunt seems to understand the thoughts of a boy who has spent his life concealing his emotions, on an eerie, snowy night after rescuing a dog that dislikes him.
The complete chapter 2 had been cut out of the book--what I read I enjoyed, but was disappointed in receiving an incomplete book.
Gus Oliver lives with his several siblings and parents in rural upstate New York. He is nicknamed "the stone face boy." Gus is a strange and awkward boy but likable. When a stray dog is befriended by his sister, he doesn't take an immediate like to him.

When the dog goes missing one night, it appears only Gus can find him before the dog is hunted or trapped in the cold winter night.

Paula Fox wrote a meaningful novella about Gus Oliver and his relationship with his family. Fox writes about animals and their relationship with children. Gus is resistant at first but he slowly warms up to the stray.
