Contracted braille.

Fifteen-year-old Callum has just arrived from Scotland when he hands over his savings to a stranger in exchange for a filthy, half-starved dog and a carved box that he has been warned never to open. Callum is unprepared for the grinding physical labour of working on a farm; his only source of comfort is Dog, who seems to know all his secret wishes and fears. Then the mysterious carved box accidentally breaks open, and Callum is faced with some astonishing revelations and difficult decisions.

Grades 5-8.
