Summer’s Shadow


All it took was a sweet stray dog to change the life of 12-year-old Summer Larsen and those around her. Summer has a big heart and maturity beyond her years. And Shadow, named for always following her around, was destined to be her dog. But for how long? And at what price?

Dove Review

It is never easy being the new kid in town, but Summer is an innovative young girl. She has a heart of gold and gets along with almost everyone she meets. Her dad’s job has moved them around a lot and she just wants to stay in one place for a while. To complete her mission, she is trying to raise money to go to prep school in England and to do so she has her own business.

Summer makes new friends, the most important one a dog named Shadow. Together, along with other people around her, they become a pack like dogs do. But she must keep Shadow out of danger from the meddling women in the neighborhood with help from her friends who live nearby.

“Summer’s Shadow” is the heartwarming tale of a girl and her dog. While a wonderful family movie, it also speaks of friendship and never giving up. We are proud to award this film with the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages.
