The dust of 100 dogs
A Spring 2009 Children's Indie Next List Pick for Teens!
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.
Exciting, fascinating, spellbinding. I'd follow Saffron into the briny deep.—Heather Brewer, author of The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod
A non-traditional pirate tale with a dangerously raw, mystical edge and a unique modern twist. Deliciously fresh and starkly unforgettable. —Lisa McMann, New York Times best-selling author of Wake
Sparkling, original, both swashbuckling and contemporary...This gripping adventure is sure to be devoured by both teens and adults. —Lauren Baratz-Logsted, author of Angel's Choice
