Lady My Life as a Bitch

by Melvin Burgess

Lady My Life as a Bitch Synopsis

If you gotta be a dog, be a bitch. Sandra Francy is seventeen and under pressure - pressure to be good and work hard at school. But she's fed up with all that. She's been having fun, running wild - some say too wild. Then she gets turned into a dog. She's frightened at first, but she quickly realises there are pleasures she hardly knew existed. Is being human worth all the effort?
