Free young adult novel (read online) from HarperCollins - Racing in the Rain

Racing in the Rain is an online read, so it's not for everyone; although the book is aimed at a younger crowd, people of all ages should enjoy it.


Title: Racing in the Rain: My Life As A Dog by Garth Stein


Description: Have you ever wondered what your dog is thinking?

Meet one funny dog—Enzo, the lovable mutt who tells this story. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: most dogs love to chase cars, but Enzo longs to race them. He learns about racing and the world around him by watching TV and by listening to the words of his best friend, Denny, an up-and-coming race car driver, and his daughter, Zoë, his constant companion. Enzo finds that life is just like being on the racetrack—it isn't simply about going fast. And, applying the rules of racing to his world, Enzo takes on his family's challenges and emerges a hero. In the end, Enzo holds in his heart the dream that Denny will go on to be a racing champion with his daughter by his side. For theirs is an extraordinary friendship—one that reminds us all to celebrate the triumph of the human (and canine) spirit.

This is a special adaptation for young people of the acclaimed New York Times bestselling adult novel The Art of Racing in the Rain.

Odd that HC offers a free book when they're being so tight about their library ebooks....

Yeah, but since it's an online read rather than a download, it gets people to their site and (hopefully) looking around. Most people don't have the know-how to create an ebook from that in-browser reader.

Most will give up partway thru reading it online and go buy it (or, at least, that seems to be their reasoning).

I know I did for one book I tried to read free at Starbucks, using Bookish.

Don't know about the "younger" version but The Art of Racing in the Rain was one of my favorite books from last year.

Yes, I liked it quite a bit as well.
