ST. CLAIRSVILLE - Audrey Brahler knew at age 11 that she wanted to be a writer, and at age 14 she is a published author. Her book is called Rascal!, and it was published this past summer. The title character is a trouble-making German Shepherd who runs away from home while his owner Benny searches for him. Rascal meets new friends along his journey, who teach him what it means to be a friend even in hard times. The book features third-person narration from Rascal's point of view, with a few chapters devoted to Benny.
