How to Steal a Dog
Michele is thirteen and is not exceptional in any particular way – he doesn’t have many friends, he is not a brilliant student nor is he very good at sports. The boy would like to catch the attention of Stella, the girl he cannot help looking at all the time in class, but he has the feeling that she is totally unaware of his presence.
