<h2><strong>** Gold Medal Winner of a Readers' Favorite Book Award 2018**</strong><br /></h2><p><br />What would you do if you found a super intelligent dog only to discover he had valuable information inside his head that could change mankind forever?<p>The first time I saw him, I had no idea he had recently escaped from a mysterious lab. That he had been created there. I'd been living on the streets which was tough, but preferable to home. Then one day, I stumbled upon this mangy dog being attacked.<br /><br />I saved him, but then he saved me, and I realized that Muttface wasn't a normal dog. He was crazy intelligent. I'm talking Mensa levels. <br /><br />When we sought help from a grieving veterinarian named Sully, his clinic was attacked and destroyed by mercenaries. So now here we are, the three of us. On the run across the country against a powerful enemy. Who are they and what do they want with us?<br /><br />Through the danger, terror, and pain, one thing was becoming clear to me: I have finally found the family I always wanted and I will do anything to keep them safe...<br /><br />Even if it means risking my own life.<br /><br /><strong>The award-winning creator & screenwriter of ground-breaking BBC television show, <em>Spirit Warriors</em> starring Jessica Henwick <em>(Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Game of Thrones, The Defenders)</em> brings you an action-packed thrill-ride in her debut novel readers unanimously raved about, describing it as a "Must-Read" and "Unputdownable". <br /><br />If you loved <em>Dean Koontz's Watchers,</em> Marvel movie <em>Logan</em>, <em>Maximum Ride,</em> and stories about dogs (and people) in desperate need of family and love, you will love <em>The Chase Ryder Series.</em></strong><br /></p>

<p>One teenager in a skirt. <br />One teenager with a lighter.<br />One moment that changes both of their lives forever. </p><p>If it weren’t for the 57 bus, Sasha and Richard never would have met.

Each day, their paths overlapped for a mere eight minutes. But one afternoon on the bus ride home from school, a single reckless act left Sasha severely burned, and Richard charged with two hate crimes and facing life imprisonment. </p><p><i>The 57 Bus </i>is Dashka Slater's true account of the case that garnered international attention and thrust both teenagers into the spotlight.</p>
