Publisher's Summary

Deckawoo Drive's intrepid animal control officer meets her match - or does she? A funny, heartfelt, and fast-paced romp from the national ambassador for young people's literature.

Francine Poulet is the greatest animal control officer in Gizzford County. She hails from a long line of animal control officers. She's battled snakes, outwitted squirrels, and stared down a bear. "The genuine article", Francine's dad always called her. She is never scared - until, that is, she's faced with a screaming raccoon that may or may not be a ghost. Maybe Francine isn't cut out to be an animal control officer after all! But the raccoon is still on the loose, and the folks on Deckawoo Drive need Francine back. Can she face her fears, round up the raccoon, and return to the ranks of animal control? Join a cast of familiar characters - Frank; Stella; Mrs. Watson; and Mercy, the porcine wonder for some riotous raccoon wrangling on Deckawoo Drive.

Adore this story of courage, identity and friendship

Sometimes we face something we cannot control, expect, or overcome, something that lays us flat, causing one to forget who and what she is. This book is a story about one such journey for Francine Poulet: losing herself, shattering her body and her self-conception in one dramatic moment of failure. But then it’s also about gathering courage, reclaiming inspiration, and remembering ones true self. It’s also about the simplicity of friendship as an essential way of reminding us of who we are, and giving us hope when we cannot muster it on our own. This is a story about recovery.
