She soon finds herself on a movie set, and her new life is filled with challenges and rewards. She learns things like to Go Mark, Cut, and Dig. Her rewards include squeaky toys, yummy chicken, and best of all, love and affection from castmates and crew. Everyone loves Shelby! And so will young readers and movie fans.

        I really thought this book is very cute and heartwarming, and it shows sometimes that life needs to have t was adventures. I was great to have someone by your side to help you through hard times, and that is what one of Shelby's siblings did for her. It was also very entertaining to read especially knowing that she was a movie star. I think that made the book worth reading it a little more. I rate it 5 stars for the feeling and the love in this book.

          Shelby's Story is about a little dog who went from being trapped in a yard, to escaping and free. She left the yard and spent weeks on the street with one of her siblings. She finds herself in a tight space when her sibling is caught and a few weeks later so is Shelby. She is adopted by a trainer/filmmaker and trained to become a movie star. She films the movie and goes back to her new home. This book was remarkable. I rated it 5 stars for all of its life lessons.
