Saddened by the death of his dog, CB begins to question the existence of an afterlife. No one has the answer. His sister has gone goth, his best friend is a pothead, his ex-girlfriend is an pyromaniac, and the rest of his childhood friends are sex-obsessed and homophobic. His only outlet is his letters to a pen pal that never writes back. A chance meeting with the school's outcast, the target of this group's bullying, sets in motion a friendship that will push teen angst to the very limits. Bert V. Royal's DOG SEES GOD: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead is an "unauthorized parody" of America's most famous cartoon strip as they enter puberty and endure the angst-ridden social world known as high school. Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion, and sexual identity collide and careen toward an ending that's both haunting and hopeful.
