Summary
Unlike other dogs, Enzo is almost human. Through listening to his master, race driver Denny Swift, Enzo has gained an insight into the world of people. On the eve of his death, Enzo takes stock of all that he and his family have been through. He remembers the painful loss of Denny's wife, Eve, and the trauma of the battle to regain custody of their daughter Zoe from her manipulative grandparents. Enzo heads into the light, hoping fervently to return as a smooth-skinned man, and knows that for him at least, the race to save his family has been won..
Summary
Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television and by listening closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver. On the night before his death, Enzo takes stock of his life, recalling all that he and his family have been through, hoping, in his next life, to return as a human.
