I know this much about racing in the rain. Stillman's brothers have always treated him as an outcast.
Enzo does everything he can to be ready. The way Enzo narrates is awesome. True companions that move through a series of events that lead, as life often does, to heart rendering triumphs and heart breaking tragedies, all as told from Enzo's canine perspective as he looks back on his life as he prepares himself for his soul's next life.

Even though it's clear from the first chapter what will happen at the end, the last 20 pages made me cry great, shuddering sobs.

And as an aside, I can assure you that doctors and drug companies are not sitting around boardroom tables scheming over how to swindle sick people out of all their money.
