It's the summer of 1968 in Sonoma County, California, and eleven-year-old Weston Gregg and his nine-year-old sister, Wendy, are looking for fun things to do during their summer break from school. When they discover some abandoned rabbits, they hatch an idea to make a positive difference for animals and people in their small town of Tyler Stop.

They decide to form 'Rescue Each Species-Quickly', or RES-Q Tyler Stop.

There are challenges to face as they move forward into their new venture, including standing up to someone who is targeting Weston's friends for being different and a painfully bad decision.

Will Weston have to handle these issues on his own or will he learn to accept the advice and wisdom shared by some important people in his life? Join Weston and his family and friends as they share some adventures and learn and grow together in RES-Q Tyler Stop.

MY TIDBITS

Disclaimer: I was lucky enough to receive an ARC copy of this title and am leaving my honest thoughts.

Adventure has no end in this tale, where a heart for animals inspires and surprises await around every bend.
Weston and Wendy discover several over-heated bunnies left behind after the County Fair. After assisting their father in cooling them down, they take on the job as foster parents until the true owners can pick them up a few days later. The two children are sad to see the rabbits go, but soon discover more animals who require their help. The RES-Q Tyler Stop is born, and their mission is to assist animals whenever they can. But tending to animals isn’t always as easy or safe as it might seem, and during a camping trip, Weston makes a dangerous mistake. This is only the beginning of the adventures which await them.
Weston and Wendy are siblings to root for. Their love for animals touches the heart, and their determination is inspiring. Most of their actions are well-thought out, while others show that everyone makes mistakes and learning is an important part of life. While the first half of the story concentrates on their adventures with animals, the second half takes a slight turn and hits modern topics such as diversity and acceptance.
The characters and the situations they face come across realistic, and the scenes develop naturally. Not only does the author keep a nice paced plot rolling along but adds interesting and practical information about animals and ways to handle certain situations along the way. It makes for a fun mix of fiction and fact.
This appears to be the first book in the series, and I’m eager to see where the RES-Q Tyler Stop adventures will head to next.
