Max: Best Friend. Hero. Marine. by Jennifer Li Shotz Review

Book Nerd Review by Jordan

The New York Times bestselling movie novelization—a powerful story about a special dog and what it means to be a hero that more and more readers have discovered

When Justin's older brother, Kyle, is killed in Afghanistan, Justin can't believe that his brother is really gone. Except there's one thing that Kyle left behind….

Max is a highly trained military canine who has always protected his fellow soldiers. But when he loses his handler and best friend, Kyle, Max is traumatized and unable to remain in the service.

He is sent home to America, where the only human he connects with is Justin, and he is soon adopted by Kyle's family, essentially saving his life. At first Justin has no interest in taking care of his late brother's troubled dog. However, the two learn to trust each other, which helps the four-legged veteran become his heroic self once more.

As the pair start to unravel the mystery of what really happened to Kyle, they find more excitement—and danger—than they bargained for. But they might also find an unlikely new best friend in each other.

Quotes from Goodreads

“My point is, Justin, a hero tells the truth, no matter what people might think about him. And you’ve always done that. From day one.” ― Boaz Yakin, Max: Best Friend. Hero. Marine

Max was just an amazing book! It was also very sad.Max was always there for Kyle until the very end. Kyle served in the war. He was following his father's footsteps. Max and Justin did not really like each other at first. Max is one of my favorite dog books. I really feel bad for Max. Max would miss Kyle a lot. Justin thought he would never get Max but he ended up getting him. This book had the best ending. The ending was happy. Max and Justin finally found themselves as best friends.
