Rescue & Jessica : A life-changing friendship

By Jessica Kensky and Patrick Downes, Illustrated by Scott Magoon (Candlewick Press – 2018)

Rescue thought he’d grow up to be a Seeing Eye dog -it’s the family business, after all. But when he gets the news that he’s better suited to being a service dog, he’s worried that he’s not up to the task. Then he meets Jessica, a girl whose life turned out differently from the way she’d imagined it, too. >>> Jessica Kensky and Patrick Downes were married in 2012, and were injured during the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013.
