    A dreamy, introspective story from the award-winning author of The Truth as Told by Mason Buttle (2018), A Home for Goddesses and Dogs explores grief and family through the relatable lens of a 13-year-old girl left bereft by the untimely death of her beloved artist mother. Newly orphaned Lydia is swept to her new home, a rural farm in Connecticut, by an aunt she never knew into a family she could not realize she needed. Lydia's journey through her grief and struggle to adapt to a new life without her mom is nicely paralleled in the travails of the seemingly untrainable adopted rescue dog also recently added to the household, and the apt comparisons are sure to spark plenty of discussion in youth book clubs and reading groups. The emotional depth and sensitivity of the characters feels authentic, while Connor's sharp descriptions bring a winter pastoral wonderland into sharp focus. Recommended for children's collections where realistic fiction is in demand. Grades 5-8. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
