Meet the unforgettable Gassi, a ghostly English Setter on a mission. In life, he was ignored and abandoned, but now he has his “wings” he has found his purpose and his power. He needs to save his friends and knows just the person to help him - eleven-year-old reluctant psychic Ruby Copperthorne. She has just moved to Tuscany, Italy with her mum and she absolutely does not want to be there. If you ask Ruby, there is nothing good about living in another country, except she may be able to get a dog and she might stop meeting ghosts.
But Ruby's hopes of being normal are destroyed on her very first night in the old farmhouse in Tuscany when the visions start again. After meeting a local boy and his strange grandmother who lives in the woods, Ruby is drawn into a situation she could never have imagined. A situation which means she has to choose between safe normality or extraordinary powers.
Ghost Dog is awash with magic, the enchantment of the Tuscan countryside and the difficulty of coping with being different. It is also a story about dealing with grief and the power of being true to yourself.
