Praise for Your Robot Dog Will Die
"Only a true dog lover could have written this marvelous book. By setting the story in a dystopian world where real dogs are no more, its artful storytelling makes the best possible case for treating dogs well, as that is what they so richly deserve for giving us unconditional love like no other creature on this earth. This book will make you smile and give your real-life canine extra hugs, and really, what could be better than that?"
—W. Bruce Cameron, #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Dog’s Purpose
"This book is weird, and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible."
—Eric Smith, Paste Magazine
“Tacitly challenges our notions of kindness and our world view of bioethics . . . The way she weaves this delightfully heartbreaking, comically sobering dystopian story sets her work apart from most dystopian YA.”
"There is no putting down this fun, quirky read."
—The New Barker
