This Week in Print: The Dust of 100 Dogs by A. S. King

I should be happy now that I've survived the curse. After 100 lives as a dog it's great to be a human again. But in 20th-century America, a 16-year-old girl just doesn't have the same freedoms as I had back in the late 1600s. Well, the good news is that I am great at history; the bad news is that pirate isn't the profession my parents have in mind for me. If only I could get a plane ticket and a shovel, I'd be able to dig up my treasure and be free.

MizB at Should Be Reading hosts Teaser Tuesdays. Here's how it works: Grab your current read; let the book fall open to a random page; and share 2 “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12. For more teasers, click on through to MizB's blog.

A puppy can walk and wander and whine from the minute they leave the amniotic sac. There is a freedom in that, which I learned to appreciate during those first years as a human again. Lying on my back for hours in a crib, wearing a diaper, and drooling made me feel like an idiot. (p. 8)

Yes, a baby's life has its problems. And think about all that milk they have to drink! Yuck! Sounds like an interesting book. And I love that cover! Good teaser.

Dawn @ sheIsTooFondOfBooks 9/8/09, 12:23 PM  

I was in the dark about this 'just out' book until your post. Sounds like a very interesting premise. I really liked your perspective in the "where are you" blurb.

Louise 9/8/09, 12:52 PM  

That is really a great teaser I think. I am tempted to put this on my wish list, now that I am out there looking for books to buy, buy, buy (I recently cleaned out a ton of books, so I feel like it is totally okay to get some new ones to fill the empty spaces on the shelves ;o)

ibeeeg 9/8/09, 1:35 PM

This sounds like an absolutely delightful book! I love the premise. I think I'm definitely going to have to go find this book, from the sound of it. Great choice!

Hmmm...I've heard conflicting things about this book. Some have said it's amazing, others not so much. Your teaser is definitely great, though!

Oh, wow. Never heard of the book. I like the Where are you blurb. I might start participating in that meme.

The Bumbles 9/8/09, 9:21 PM  

Oh that really is too funny - is the whole book that clever?

Speaking of clever - I saw your blog nominated on BBAW and was thrilled for you!

And Albert arrived today safe and sound - thank you very much ;0)

Your quote is so funny. Here's hoping the rest of the book is this good.
