The Scrapper 

  Request this author
Garrett P. Murphy finds himself during the winter break of his 8th grade year having to take care of himself because nobody else can. He struggles, in the fast-paced places of both New Jersey and New York City, to support himself and his family after the loss of what should be a reliable figure in his life. He receives celestial help from a canine pal he names The Scrapper, or "Scrap" for short. With her by his side, Garrett discovers his own impressive resourcefulness, and even starts a small repair business. He is pushed to survive, finding help from places he never could have imagined. The Scrapper hints at violence in the home and therefore has a mature theme. It is designed for kids ages 7 - 11 to enjoy.
