Dog lovers will lap up Incredibull Stella: How the Love of a Pit Bull Rescued a Family (Citadel Press Kensington, $15.95) by Paradise Valley entrepreneur Marika Meeks and professional author Elizabeth Ridley. In an emotional memoir, Meeks details her personal journey with stage 3 breast cancer and how adopting a vivacious pit bull rescue, Stella, helped her and her family rebuild their lives and reignite hope during her recovery. Along the way, Stella became a social media sensation (follow her on Instagram at @incredibullstella) and a “breed ambassador” for the often controversial breed. We recommend tissues for this one.
