Lady

By Melvin Burgess

Honest, original and utterly filthy, Lady: My Life as a Bitch follows Sandra - a seventeen-year-old girl who doesn't run with the pack.

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?

  • Uproarious drama from the undisputed king of British YA fiction, Melvin Burgess, winner of the Carnegie Medal and Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize
  • Now rereleased with bold new cover to match the rest of the backlist
  • ‘It’s original, challenging and incredibly rude’ Independent ‘It has Burgess’s unpredictability, darkness and ability to confront the dispiriting’ Observer
