Enzo is everything you want in a family member; wise, funny, loving, compassionate, honest, protective, and loyal.  He loves watching television especially car races.  The only thing he loves more than racing cars is his family, Denny, Eve, and Zoe.  What Enzo wants most is for his family to be happy and to go fast, fast, faster in a race car.

The story Enzo tells is sad and funny, filled with imperfect people trying to do the right thing.  Sometimes getting it right and sometimes not so right.  Enzo observes it all and tells it like he sees it.  If he could he would tell the people he loves what he knows and how much he loves them.

This book will  make you laugh and cry and it will make you angry.  It will make you stop and ponder some things you think you know but maybe do not.

Did I mention Enzo is a dog?  Well, Enzo is a dog.  And he has something to say worth reading.
