Max: Best Friend. Hero. Marine.

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


The New York Times bestselling movie novelization—a powerful story about a special dog and what it means to be a hero that more and more readers have discovered

When Justin's older brother, Kyle, is killed in Afghanistan, Justin can't believe that his brother is really gone. Except there's one thing that Kyle left behind….

Max is a highly trained military canine who has always protected his fellow soldiers. But when he loses his handler and best friend, Kyle, Max is traumatized and unable to remain in the service.

He is sent home to America, where the only human he connects with is Justin, and he is soon adopted by Kyle's family, essentially saving his life. At first Justin has no interest in taking care of his late brother's troubled dog. However, the two learn to trust each other, which helps the four-legged veteran become his heroic self once more.

As the pair start to unravel the mystery of what really happened to Kyle, they find more excitement—and danger—than they bargained for. But they might also find an unlikely new best friend in each other.

Max the Book

This is such a good book and is over 5 stars for dog lovers and others!!! The whole time I read this book I was like 1 more chapter no 2 more no 3 more!!!!! The first time I saw the movie trailer I was like I need to see this cause it reminds me of my dog Macy who has a lot stress from being beaten and is super smart and was from the start. She is also terrified of loud noises. But when I found out there was a book for Max the movie I bought it.. And not once did I stop and say this book is getting boring or I don't want to read this book!!!! Overall I would give this book a definite 5 stars even more but I would suggest this book to a lot of people and it's such a great book!!!!
