Incredibull Stella: How the Love of a Pit Bull Rescued a Family Reviews

  • Diana Brown

    Thank you Netgalley and Kensington Books for giving me an Advanced copy for a review. This is an heart warming story to read although I did find it a bit difficult to get into at first. Once I got into the rythm and flow of the writing the story of Marika dealing with breast cancer, and finding Stella who helped her through her dark days, and healed her whole family I was glad I kept reading!

  • Ann

    I fell in in love with the cover and then I fell in love with the book.

    It's poignant, heartwarming, makes you smile and moves you.

    I loved the style of writing and how the story is told.

    I think it's a must read for dog lovers, highly recommended.

    Many thanks to Kensington Books and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.

    Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for providing this book in exchange for an honest review.

    I am a huge dig lover, especially Pit Bulls and other breeds with misunderstood reputations, so I was very happy to be approved for this book. This book is a great example of the power a dog can have on humans. I can relate to several of the trial and error issues with trying to find a good match with dogs who have unfortunately been abused. It is such a devastating feeling knowing a poor abused pu

This book is a great example of the power a dog can have on humans. I can relate to several of the trial and error issues with trying to find a good match with dogs who have unfortunately been abused. It is such a devastating feeling knowing a poor abused pup won't be a good fit for one's family.

    If you love dogs and want an uplifting story of a dog and her people, read this book!

    Thank you Goodreads for my copy of Incredibull Stella. As an animal lover I could relate to this story. It continues to amaze me that so many people don't realize the importance of having a pet. Caring for each other strengthens one's self worth and let's face it, unconditional love from a furry companion doesn't hurt either. Have I read a lot of animal/human bonding stories? Sure. This one was good, not great, but good.

    I love reading books about animals and how could I resist the picture of Stella on the cover of this book?!

    Marika was a mother, wife and owner of some restaurants in Indiana. She discovered she had breast cancer when she was in her forties and got treatment for it. She was considered cancer-free but still carried the emotional baggage regarding her mortality along with the insecurities of her childhood. Though Brian, her second husband, had made it clear when they got married a couple years ago

    I love reading books about animals and how could I resist the picture of Stella on the cover of this book?!

    Marika was a mother, wife and owner of some restaurants in Indiana. She discovered she had breast cancer when she was in her forties and got treatment for it. She was considered cancer-free but still carried the emotional baggage regarding her mortality along with the insecurities of her childhood. Though Brian, her second husband, had made it clear when they got married a couple years ago that he didn't want to ever have a dog, she suddenly yearned to have one.

    Marika found Stella, a pit bull puppy, a couple years later in 2016 and was drawn to her. Brian wanted her to be happy and stressfree and the family adopted Stella. Despite the reputation that pit bulls have, Stella is a sweet and caring dog. Marika realized how much calmer and less anxious she is when she is with Stella and had her certified as an emotional support animal.

    In an attempt to "give back", Marika and her family start fostering pit bulls. Marika also wants to raise awareness that pit bulls don't deserve their reputation and to encourage others to adopt rescue animals.

    I liked this book and the writing style. I thought it was interesting and found there was a good balance between Marika's story, Stella's story, the positive awareness of pit bulls and encouraging the adoption of rescue animals (I volunteer with a cat rescue).
