# 135: The Dust of 100 Dogs - A.S. King

Visit VVB32 Reads for Talk Like A Pirate Day.
OFFICIAL TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY WEBSITE






In the late seventeenth century, famed teenage pirate Emer Morrisey was on the cusp of escaping the pirate life with her one true love and unfathomable riches when she was slain and cursed with 'the dust of one hundred dogs', dooming her to one hundred lives as a dog before returning to a human body - with her memories intact. Now she's a contemporary American teenager and all she needs is a shovel and a ride to Jamaica.

My Opinion:
If you could see me now, you would see me standing tall, clapping bravo to A.S. for such an incredible adventure. I really feel like I just got back from the most amazing time in my life.
Saffron, Emer, whatever you wanna call her, she is brilliant! I would get on a ship and do her bidding too! She's incredibly strong and has a lasting impression on you right away.
This mash up of old times and the now is really cool! I mean uber-cool! It was also a delight to have a dogs perspective, since that's sorta what it was all about.
I know some of you are like, what?! But you really gotta read the book to find out. I don't want to spoil it.


5/5


Recommend? Definitely, yes!
