- DescriptionNew York City. Evie Brooks has seen it on the TV, but she never imagined herself living there. But when her mother dies, Evie finds herself leaving her home in Dublin and moving to Manhattan to visit with her American uncle for the summer. Never having owned a pet more substantial than a goldfish, twelve-year-old Evie is intrigued by Uncle Scott's veterinary practice, and before long is working as an assistant in the clinic. Soon she finds herself immersed in dogs galore, parrots, reptiles, and an assortment of other creatures and their eccentric owners. And she loves it. Manhattan would be just about perfect if it weren't for Uncle Scott's lawyer girlfriend, who has plans for him that do t involve Evie. Before the summer is over, Evie has an important decision to make: stay in New York and confront the problem of Scott's girlfriend or return to Ireland to live with her godmother.
