Logan is a very independant boy, and he likes to do things without anyone knowing - especially Robert. Robert wants to get Logan a dog, thinking that a dog will change his behavior. His emotions will swing a lot in this book - from anger to excitement. From sadness to frustration. He and Jack's bond becomes closer than ever. They become like glue, the only thing that Logan had ever cared for or....loved.
Jack was born out in the woods, with her brother, mother, and the rest of her pack. But her mother died right in front of her and her brother. Jack is a very strong and protective dog. While Logan was at bootcamp, Robert locked her down in the basement. She dug her self out of the basement to go find Logan. They got along so well. They had plenty of things in common but one thing in particular - they both hate Robert.
