Praise For When Mr. Dog Bites…
“Insightful, engaging. . . . This is an uninhibited and compelling look inside the mind of a teen living with Tourette's.” —School Library Journal
“Dylan is a wonderful character--hopeful in the face of death, loving despite the slurs and cruelty he faces, and incredibly loyal to Amir. . . . This is an unusual coming-of-age tale that is thoroughly engaging.” —VOYA
“Charming . . . Dylan is smart and caring, and beneath his realistically portrayed condition, he is a normal teenager with relatable concerns. As Dylan would say, this one is 'A-mayonnaise-ing.'” —Booklist
“The book does a nice job of showing a teen coping with more than his disorder . . . Teens will laugh their way through to find Dylan's heart of gold.” —BCCB
“Readers will laugh out loud.” —Library Media Connection
