The Crazy Man by Pamela Porter

I have read a book by Pamela Porter called The Crazy Man. It’s about a young girl named Emiline, living on a wheat farm and her dog, Prince, chases a rabbit around the field while Em and her father are riding the tractor. Prince didn’t realize that he ran in front of the tractor and Em jumped off to protect Prince. Unfortunately, her father accidentally ran over her foot that left her with a permanent disability and after Em was placed in the hospital her father blamed Prince for everything and tied him up and shot him then walked up the street and never looked back. Em and her mother were left to fend for themselves, so everyone told them to get extra help. The mother went to the mental hospital and had a patient help her in field. I would recommend this book to anyone that can handle and not be immature about the situation.
