In this book, God is an average teenager named Bob. Unfortunately, he’s not a very good God – he’s egocentric, lazy and crazy for sex. After six days of divine existence and responsibility, he loses interest in Earth and its inhabitants. His assistant Mr B. tries to prevent the worst from happening… which proves as absolutely vital when Bob falls head-over-heels for Lucy, a smart girl who works at a zoo. Bob isn’t just crushing, either – he becomes completely obsessed, and the worst godly consequences follow… THERE IS NO DOG constitutes one of the most original, bizarre and thought-provoking young adult novels of the last years. Meg Rosoff, the author of “THERE IS NO DOG”, is taking part in the ilb for the second time since 2008. “One must simply revel in the joyful singularity of Rosoff’s latest masterpiece” (Anthony McGowan, The Guardian).
