  • About the Book

    Russell and Shawn call themselves the PS Brothers: P is for poop, S is for scoop, and Brothers is because they’re best friends. Scooping poop is the fastest way to earn money to buy a puppy. These two are crazy about dogs. And they’re sure that once their puppy grows into a tough dog, no one will ever pick on them for being weak or poor again. Unfortunately, getting a puppy is not that easy. Russell and Shawn don’t count on uncovering a dog-fighting ring—and that can bust apart a dream faster than a dog can sniff out a bone.

    But doing the right thing might still get them what they want—and maybe even more.

    "Heartwarming yet full of gritty issues." —Kirkus Reviews

    "Part of the appeal of this book is its edginess. Shawn’s and Russell’s hardscrabble existences and their heartfelt yearning for a dog to defend them are compelling."—School Library Journal

    "A lighthearted portrait of a strong friendship and a plucky kid who doesn't let tough circumstances get him down." —Booklist

    "The book's accessibility and high-interest subject make it a natural for reluctant readers, and readers in general will appreciate Russell's moral dilemma and sigh in relief at the happy puppy-acquiring ending."—The Bulletin
