Wallace Wallace does not lie. No seriously. He. Does. Not. Lie. Which, besides the point of who names their kid Wallace Wallace?!?, is a problem. When given an assignment to write a book review of Old Shep, My Pal for school, he writes it exactly how he feels. The problem is that it’s the teacher’s favorite book. Ever. The problem? The dog dies, like every dog on every book cover of any book about a dog. That bother’s Wallace and he isn’t afraid to say so. Honestly so.
‘No More Dead Dogs’ is an ingenious tale of a young man and his truthful to a vault mindset. I enjoyed the premise of the book and the twists and turns (albeit sometimes unbelievable ones) that bring it to the happy ending that Wallace wanted from the beginning. As an adult reader I wouldn’t have minded more back story on his truthfulness. Well and some of the twists of the story that just really would not have happened in real life left me boggled. But as a young adult novel I think it’s amazingly conceptualized and written.
Though really…Wallace Wallace?
