The Dog Park Club by Cynthia Robinson centers around Max Bravo, a bisexual "mid-rung" opera singer. One afternoon while walking his best friend Claudia's dog he is invited to join a group that hangs out at the dog park down the street from her house. He tells Claudia about the group, and when Max is out of town she becomes an integral part of the "Dog Park Club." While initially wary of the group's socially diverse crowd, Max cannot avoid the siren call of drama. When one member of the group, the beautiful, pregnant Amy Carter, goes missing the Dog Park Club is thrust into the national spotlight. The group quickly develop their theory and go on a Sand Lot-esque mission to prove it.
Robinson's debut is quirky, sarcastic and fun- a great book for a day at the beach. Her unique cast of characters, Max Bravo being the most entertaining, wont let you put the book down. Robinson manages to keep a mysterious tension through the whole book, while allowing her diverse cast individual moments of comic relief. Don't miss this witty debut this summer!
