This is a nice story about friendship not only between two girls from different backgrounds but also between a girl and a dog. Lily has inherited Lucky from her mother. Lucky is going blind and Lily wants him to have an operation so he can see again. She does what she can to raise money and save up for the surgery, all the while being very considerate of Lucky's reduced abilities. In the end Lily realizes, "...there are worse things than being blind. Being alone was worse. Having regret was worse. Losing someone you loved was worse." (p. 177)
