Emer Morrisey is a pirate. When she's killed, she's cursed to live the life of a hundred dogs before becoming human again, and with her memories still intact. The book takes us to both lives, one where her family is killed in war and she's separated from the one she loves, the other being her modern life where she's trying to find the treasure she buried as a pirate while simultaneously dealing with her concerned parents and out-of-contol brother.
The Dust of 100 Dogs is a fun novel to read. Both the story of her as a pirate as well as the story Saffron (the modern-day Emer) and her life. It was heavier than some other books I've read, but not so heavy that it becomes work to read it. The story was creative and interesting, the narration was well-done, and I enjoyed the Dog Facts scattered throughout it. I loved The Dust of 100 Dogs, and I would definitely recommend it.
