Strays by Ron Koertge***

Strays is about Ted, a boy who is an orphan and an outsider. He has an ability to talk to animals, but he must always be careful with what he does. That's what got him out of his last school. He was bullied way too much for his interactions with animals. He lives with crazed foster parents and two weird foster brothers. He is now trying to live to the fullest in this life.

This book was a nice short read for an animal lovers of all sorts. It had a fast pace and funny dialogue to match. It was ok when people were fighting and arguing. This is definitely for kids who love animals, but be aware that the foster parents are completely bizarre.
