“Finding Susie” is the latest title by Supreme Court justice Sandra Day O'Connor.
According to the product description: “A “perfect pet” story from Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.Sandra is growing up on a desert ranch surrounded by animals, but she wants one to have her very own pet. A tortoise isn’t really friendly, a little rabbit is too fearful, and a young coyote howls to rejoin his pack.
A bobcat almost fits the bill, but soon grows too big and fierce to be a housecat. Sandra’s parents let her learn for herself that these animals are best suited to the wild, though it is often hard to let them go.
Finally, a smiley little stray dog finds Sandra. Sandra names the dog Susie, and the two become wonderful friends.”
