The Art of Racing in the Rain

This is an okay book written by Garth Stein. Enzo is a dog, but he has thoughts like any human and hopes to someday be reincarnated as a man. His master Denny is a champion race car driver and mechanic. After his wife dies from cancer, her parents sue him to gain custody of their daughter. Complicating the case is a false accusation that he raped a 15-year-old relative of his wife. Now he must fight to not only have the charges dropped, but to be able to regain full custody of his daughter.

The book would have been much better if it was told from the man’s perspective and not the dog’s view. It is way too easy for a man’s reputation and career to be destroyed from a baseless accusation of sexual abuse.
