Dermot Greaney turns thirteen on the day schools in Ireland are closed due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. The Dublin boy tries to get on with life, coping with online school, his mother battling a pre-diabetic condition and the community lockdown. When the senior man next door is taken ill, Dermot promptly volunteers to care for his large dog, which might be the best decision he ever made.
In the lively dog Sheila, Dermot finds a friend at last. Someone to be on his side, even when his mum insists on serving him salads and the class hooligans start cyber-bullying him. In return for his care, Sheila teaches him responsibility – but will he learn in time? Sometimes our own actions cause us trouble. And sometimes we’ll find happiness unexpectedly.
This informative, positive thinking story for young people mixes fact with fiction, dog lore, photos and a recipe.
Illustrated with photos by the author.
Second in the Irish Lockdown series.
Another atmospheric story of young adults and challenges from the No.1 Bestselling author of RODEO FINN and A PONY FOR QUARANTINE.

"I liked the fact there were people of all ages in this book, and the teens were from different walks of life but worked well together as teams....
I highly recommend this book."
