"Tacitly challenges our notions of kindness and our world view of bioethics . . . The way she weaves this delightfully heartbreaking, comically sobering dystopian story sets her work apart from most dystopian YA." ~Creative Loafing
ABOUT THE BOOK: Nano Miller has never kept a pet for longer than a year. In a future where dogs have reverted to a feral species hostile to humans, Nano's family serves as a focus group for a new model of robot dog each year. They belong to a community of animal enthusiasts called Dog Island, where six wild dogs live in a sanctuary. When Nano finds a newborn puppy with a miraculously playful spirit, she must decide whether to risk everything for a chance at a real pet. With her friend Jack and her boyfriend, Wolf, Nano will uncover the truth about Dog Island's mission that caused her older brother, Billy, to desert.
