We all know that therapy is just an expensive way to dump out all the feelings and stories that are too embarrassing to share with the people in your life. Now, in Cheaper Than Therapy, you can journal about your childhood, your recurring dreams, and what your relationship was like with your parents.
Twelve-year old Martin has only just moved to a new town when he encounters some mean kids tormenting a small Jack Russell terrier puppy, lost and alone. Martin saves him, brings him home, and eventually gives him a name-Cool Shoes. Now the puppy has a home and a friend, and Martin knows he'll never be lonely again. Martin's mom and the squirrels take a liking to Cool Shoes, but the puppy needs to play with other dogs, too. One day at the dog park, Martin makes the acquaintance of Zaria, who also owns a Jack Russell. Now both Martin and Cool Shoes have new friends, and together, they can stand up to any foe! The friends need to be strong together, because there are bullies everywhere. Martin and Cool Shoes learn that some people just don't want to get along, but they also learn that all people can get along, if only they try. This is the story of a boy and his rescue dog, but it's also about friendship, family, and the bravery it takes to do the right thing.
