Was really good, I thoroughly enjoyed it ... wish there could have been more Emer stories ... and more about her and Seanie. But really well written. ( )

This is a really unusual, fascinating book; the main character was killed in the 1600s, lived as a dog 100 times, and now is a teenage girl hoping to go back to Jamaica and retrieve the treasure she and the love of her life buried. She is primarily herself, Saffron, living in a dysfunctional family that expects her to go to college and become a doctor, but she retains all her memories as a dog and as Emre, an strong Irish woman who falls in love, has various misfortunes, and becomes a pirate in Jamaica. How Saffron and Emre manage so many complications and how A.S. King helps us leap back and forth between personalities, times, and places is simply amazing. (In fact, it took me a little while to take the leaps with the author, but once I did, I was hooked.) What an extremely lively imagination! 4.5 stars. ( )

This book was extremely unexpected in a good way. The story goes back and forth between Safron's current life as a modern teenager and her past life as a child growing up in Ireland and eventually becoming a pirate. There are also several excerpts from her time as various dogs as well.

The hopelessness of her modern family's situation is a stark contrast to the strong family she had as a child in Ireland. Additionally the contrast between how Safron handles Emer and how James handles the Frenchmen show how much strength Safron has. ( )

Book description
In the late 17th century, famed pirate Emer Morrisey was on the cusp of escaping pirate life with her one true love and unfathomable riches when she was slain and cursed with the dust of 100 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.
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Cursed to live the lives of 100 dogs, a seventeenth-century pirate finally returns to life as a human being and has only one thing on her mind--to recover the treasure she had buried in Jamaica three hundred years before.
