She's getting older too and dealing with her own stress at school, etc. It's hard for her younger brothers to understand her as well. The children wonder why Toby can't live forever. This has to be one of the most emotional children's books I've read this year.
The story feels genuine and anybody that's gone through it can understand how difficult it is to say goodbye. Dogs become family and it's hard to let them go. This story highlights the dynamics of a family dealing with loss. Each one of them deals with it differently. View all 6 comments. Dec 09, Brooklyn Tayla rated it really liked it.

She is the catcher for the state softball team, but gives it up to join the cricket team, as the keeper. She has gotten incredibly close to Toby in the short time that he has known her, leading to Georgie believing that they are a secret item, which they are not. She seems a very accomplished wicketkeeper, and her batting escapades are not shown very often.
Rahul is one of Toby's close friends. A passionate Indian cricket, Rahul is the backup wicketkeeper, and an accomplished top order batsman. He convinces Toby to take him to Madras in an attempt to save his dead brother, but the attempt is a failure. Scott Craven is Toby's one-time enemy and one-time friend. Touted as the best player in the competition, Scott is a ferocious fast bowler and explosive hitter. He was a part of the Riverwall side, until he swapped to play for his uncle's side, the Scorpions, then swapped back.
Jimbo Temple is the quiet man of the cricket team.

A brilliant batter, the best in the team, Jimbo is not allowed to play - a rule imposed by his dad - until Toby manages to turn him around. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article does not cite any sources. Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources.

As he makes his way ever downward, avoiding ravenous weevils, steering clear of overcrowded estates made from wood chippings, he has to employ all his resourcefulness to survive.
As the perilous flight gathers speed, the narrative folds back on itself and the events that have led to Toby's current plight start to throw light on why both he and the Tree itself are in such danger. It becomes clear that the captive Sim is a pioneer who expounds theories to prove "that the Tree is alive" and "the sap is its blood".
The tale of a tree
When developer and empire builder Joe Mitch Arbor wants to get his hands on the secret of tapping into this energy source, Sim insists that he will reveal no more. And so he and his family are exiled to the lower realms. Six years later, many of Sim's ominous predictions have come to pass in the higher reaches. Vast tracts of once-beautiful terrain, having been razed and developed, are "gangrenous now, swarming with busy people". Joe Mitch and his "Friendly Neighbourhood" committees have taken charge and continue to dig huge Welcome Housing Projects.
Doublespeak rules and the Tree is suffering mortal damage.
