Author Becca Wierwille discusses her new middle grade novel, Road Trip Rescue, in which 12-year-old Kimmy loses her dog Bo. But Bo is more than just a pet. He is Kimmy’s best friend—because Bo never made fun of her for being born with only one hand. When Kimmy stumbles across a magazine photo of a dog eating an ice cream cone, she knows in her heart that the dog is Bo. With the aid of her Aunt Skylar, an adventure-seeking, pink-haired woman, Kimmy goes on a road trip to try to find her dog. Becca and her main character Kimmy share something in common—they were both born with a limb difference. Born with only half of her right arm, Becca now uses her stories to help others find beauty in what makes them extraordinary.
