Waiting on Wednesday: There is No Dog by Meg Rosoff

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

From Amazon:

In the beginning there was Bob.

And Bob created the heavens and the earth

and the beasts of the field

and the creatures of the sea,

and twenty-five million other species

including lots and lots of gorgeous girls.

And all of this, he created in just six days.

Six days!

Congratulations, Bob!

No wonder Earth is such a mess.

Imagine that God is a typical teenage boy. He is lazy, careless, self-obsessed, sex-mad -- and about to meet Lucy, the most beautiful girl on earth.

Unfortunately, whenever Bob falls in love, disaster follows.

Let us pray that Bob does not fall in love with Lucy.

Why I can't wait to read it:

The central concept sounds potentially hilarious and Rosoff is an ultra-talented author. How I Live Now is one of my favourite YA books of recent years, with What I Was not far behind. This should be great!
