Kristy is still hung up on hoping that her father will return to her family. Mary Anne has to prove to her father that she's no longer a little girl who needs hundreds of rules. Claudia is navigating her first major crush on a boy. And Stacey is leaving her entire New York City life behind...

But when their mother is taken from them suddenly and too soon, the puppies are forced to make their own way in the world, facing humans both gentle and brutal, busy highways, other animals, and the changing seasons. When Bone and Squirrel become separated, Squirrel must fend for herself, and in the process makes two friends who in very different ways define her fate.

She's written letters to Lewis, but she's never had a boyfriend before. What if Lewis doesn't like her? That's when Dawn decides she needs a new image.

Mrs. Brewer has been acting kind of strange and secretive lately, and Kristy's worried about her... But then Kristy gets another one of her great ideas.
