Atticus: A Woman’s Journey with the World’s Worst Behaved Dog
Sawyer Bennett writing as S. Bennett
Release Date: June 12, 2018
A heart-warming and deliciously funny story about the world’s worst behaved dog and how he trained his human how to love herself again.
Through the haze of vodka and self-loathing, Hazel Roundtree saw the poor creature lying in a ditch.
One brown eye. One blue.
Covered in mud and crying from pain, the puppy was desperately trying to free itself from a hopeless situation.
She almost kept walking by. She had her own problems and besides… no one had ever stopped to help her.
Who we’re ultimately meant to be is a journey without end, but there’s always a defined start…
Hazel had no idea the dog would be her beginning, her second chance, the miracle she never saw coming. She named him Atticus. He grew up to be a very bad—and completely awesome—dog. He took Hazel on a life-changing journey filled with mischievous adventure and painful heartbreak. In the end, Hazel grew up to be completely awesome, too.

Atticus is a standalone novel by the fabulous S. Bennett (Sawyer Bennett). I have read all of Sawyer’s books and I’m here to tell you, this woman can write anything! This isn’t your standard romance, although there is a little of that. This is about the journey Hazel goes on. She’s hit rock bottom. She’s a mess and pretty much all alone. Until she sees a puppy who desperately needs help. Hazel can barely help herself, but she can’t just walk away. Atticus, the amazing dog, opens up so many new doors and windows for Hazel. He teaches her how to love herself again. How to forgive and forget. How to love and trust and how to push herself and make her dreams come true. Everyone Hazel and Atticus meet becomes a special part of their family. It’s a heartwarming, heartbreaking, fun, silly, sad, hopeful and inspiring story. I loved reading Atticus’ point of view. He’s the best dog ever! Overall, I laughed, cried, got mad, sighed, smiled and laughed some more. Hazel and her dog are characters that will stay with me for a long time!
I know that smell. It’s of man and fun and kindness. It’s a smell that made Hazel very happy once, and I must inspect this further.
