Winner of the June 2015 Elle Readers Prize

“Mireya Navarro offers a funny and honest tale of her journey to figure out where she fits in among husband, stepchildren and Eddie.” –The Los Angeles Times

“…far more than amusing anecdotes about a dog. It’s a memoir of a terrific journalist…It’s an honest account of being a journalist as the sand shifts under us, and about finding the right man…Navarro’s penultimate advice is brilliant….a great read.” —The Newark Star-Ledger

“Navarro’s story is ostensibly about the dog, but go beyond that and you’ll find a layered tale of family love… Stepdog is fun and often funny, but it will be of special interest to anyone with a blended family life. It’s a powerful reminder that all you need is love, and possibly kibble.” —Bookpage

“I adore this book.  Alternately hilarious and heart-wrenching, Stepdog is an extraordinary chronicle of romance, marriage, blended families, career juggling, and an obstreperous dog, written with a journalists’ eye for detail, and a novelists’ insight for character.  Mireya Navarro is a wonderful writer who reminds us that in the end, love and compassion conquers all – even a cantankerous canine.“                      — Bruce Feirstein, bestselling author and contributing editor, Vanity Fair
“In STEPDOG, Navarro reminds us that our companions (human and animal) challenge our assumptions,  force us to compromise and give us plenty of opportunities for hard lessons.  A charming, funny, poignant memoir about love, life and family.”                                           — Esmeralda Santiago, author of When I Was Puerto Rican and Conquistadora
