Dylan Mint has Tourette's. His life is a constant battle to keep the bad stuff in - the swearing, the tics, the howling dog that seems to escape whenever he gets stressed. But a routine visit to the hospital changes everything. Overhearing a hushed conversation between the doctor and his mum, Dylan discovers that he's going to die in March. So he makes a list of things he must do before he dies: first, he wants to have real sex with gorgeous Michelle Malloy; second, he's got to find his autistic best friend Amir a new best bud; third, he's got to get his dad back home from the army so they can say goodbye properly. It's not a long list, but it's ambitious, and he doesn't have much time. Sometimes you've just got to go for it - no holding back - and see what happens . . . This is the launch of a major new writing talent. Brian Conaghan makes you travel every step of the way in Dylan's shoes, laughing and crying - often at the same time - as Dylan faces the twists and turns of an unfair world with glorious optimism and wit.

“A barking good read”

I received When Mr Dog Bites to review as part of the lucky dip prize draw, and if that had not been the case it would not have been a book I would have chosen to read. Having said that I am glad I had the chance to... More

“A story about life, death, love, sex and swearing.”

I have never been so conflicted whilst writing a review for a book. There was a single moment early on (page 22) with a casual comment about a character making a sound like ‘a cat being gang-raped by some dingoes’ and... More

“When Mr Dog Bites”

This story is told entirely through the voice of 16-year-old Dylan and initially I found his use of rhyming slang, puns and general 'teenage boy' language extremely irritating (the swearing wasn't a... More
