Chatham New Jersey’s Penelope Lagos is a local girl who decided to turn the grief of losing her dog and best friend Cassius into a vehicle for children (and adults) to process their own grief. “I Miss My Best Friend” is a heartwarming, simple look as love and loss. Penelope is donating a portion of the proceeds of the book to animal rescue, giving Cassius the ultimate tribute. New Jersey has some highly talented and generous rockstars..I loved “I Miss My Best Friend” and if you’ve ever loved a pet, you will too.  Find Penelope’s books at   TC
