Rescue & Jessica is told from the point of view (close third person) of both Rescue, who was originally being trained as a Seeing Eye dog, and Jessica, a girl recovering from a terrible injury. They have each encountered setbacks before they meet; Rescue learns to be a service dog instead of a Seeing Eye dog, and Jessica learns that she must wear a prosthetic leg or use a wheelchair. Once Rescue is fully trained and Jessica has recovered enough to leave the hospital, they meet and make a great pair ("the truth was, they had rescued each other").

Author's Note
"Rescue & Jessica is based on a real-life friendship." Jessica and her husband and co-author Patrick Downes were injured in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing; Rescue was trained by NEADS/World Class Service Dogs. ( )

This book tells the story of Jessica, a girl who becomes a double amputee, and Rescue, a service dog. Jessica and Rescue meet after Jessica is injured and loses a leg. Rescue becomes her service dog, and together they do everything. Learning to do everything all over again is hard for Jessica, but Rescue brings light into her life. I loved the illustrations in this book--so bright and descriptive! I'm not sure I would use it to teach, but I would definitely add it to my classroom library. ( )

"Rescue and Jessica" is the story of Jessica, a girl who is injured and becomes a double amputee, and a service dog named Rescue who wants to help people. Jessica applies to receive a service dog and is given Rescue. With Rescue's help, Jessica learns to walk again and do all of the things she needs to do. This story is inspired by true events. The author, Jessica Kensky, was injured in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and became a double amputee; her service dog Rescue helps her daily.
This is a hopeful, loving book about the friendship between a girl and her dog. It shows how wonderful and important service dogs are and what a positive impact they can have on people's lives. This would be an excellent book for people of all ages to read. ( )

Based on the true story of a service dog and double-amputee's relationship. Jessica lost both of her legs as a result of the Boston Marathon Bombing, and was in need of a service dog. Rescue went through excessive training to become a service dog, and they fostered a wonderful relationship. The end of the book the authors describe the training of service dogs. I think this is a great book for first through third grade, and teaches children about disabilities. ( )
