Almost a five. I found relief in reading a very good book after so many disappointments. Buddy, Bailey, Ellie, whatever names he had, the dog finds fullfillment in the person of his first love with Ethan the human. His purpose was to ensure that Ethan died in lived and died in peace he succeeded in the task by reintroducing Ethan to his old high school sweetheart and his first love Hannah. A sweet story that had me cry a couple of times and laugh a few more.
