"Children are very much part of a family’s decision to buy a pet and armed with the right knowledge they could influence ethical choices and eventually maybe put puppy farms out of business," says Anna Kenna. The New Zealand investigative reporter-turned-author’s latest novel Underdog, tells the story of 13-year-old Caitlin Nove’s quest to save a young breeding bitch captive in a puppy farm.
From the moment the teen encounters sick and emaciated Sissy at the local vet clinic, the pair’s destinies become entwined in a compelling and touching story. The book is the second in the Viola Vincent Reporting series, stories with a journalistic theme that focus on real issues in society.
Viola Vincent, an anagram of Catlin V Nove, is the pen name Caitlin uses to disguise her secret identity as a rookie reporter for the local paper.
The story is set in New Zealand but Kenna says it could be set anywhere.
