9780141310282: Lady: My Life as a Bitch (Puffin Teenage Books)

A sexually active, rebellious teenager is transformed into a confused and frightened dog by a tramp with magical powers. Sandra has a lot of growing up to do quickly if she is to survive as a scrounging stray in a rough dogs' world. She experiences all the physical aspects of being a dog, including running with a pack and going on heat. She must decide whether she wants to recover her humanity, and if so how to do it - doubly difficult as her brain is reduced to the scattered consciousness of adog.

Review:

" Lady succeeds on several levels: it’s both a teenage rite of passage and a satire on the emptiness of modern life" ( Big Issue)

"This funny, punchy, well-written, original book asks real questions" ( Daily Telegraph)

"[Lady] has confirmed Burgess’ position as the most exciting contemporary UK writer of teenage fiction" ( Scotsman)

"Burgess keeps the suspense high to the very last. This seductive volume is as raw and ravenous as its subject" ( Publishers Weekly)

"Melvin Burgess is about to trigger an earthquake in the publishing world with his new book Lady" ( Guardian)

Book Description:

Honest, original and utterly filthy, Lady: My Life as a Bitch follows Sandra - a seventeen-year-old girl who doesn't run with the pack.
