Publisher's summary

A "suspenseful, atmospheric tale...punctured by a gut-punch twist" (Entertainment Weekly), A Boy and His Dog at the End of the World is a story of survival, courage, and hope amid the ruins of our world.

My name's Griz. I've never been to school, I've never had friends, and in my whole life I've not met enough people to play a game of football. My parents told me how crowded the world used to be, before all the people went away. But we were never lonely on our remote island. We had each other and our dogs.

Then the thief came.

"This unputdownable story has everything - a well-imagined post-apocalyptic world, great characters, incredible suspense, and, of course, the fierce love of some very good dogs." (Kirkus, starred review)

Critic reviews

"Fletcher's suspenseful, atmospheric tale imagines a near future in which our world is in ruins.... An adventure saga punctured by a gut-punch twist." (Entertainment Weekly)

"[A] heart-and gut-wrenching tale of a post-apocalyptic world.... A Boy and His Dog at the End of the World takes a memorable journey of loyalty and love and transforms it into an unraveling mystery of self-discovery and exploration.... This is the story of trust and loyalty within a family, and finding your own pack - even if they're different from the pack you were born into." (Bookpage)

"The hunt for Jess propels this story forward like a rocket, and Fletcher does a masterful job keeping the stakes high and the suspense crackling while still creating plenty of space for readers to get to know Griz and explore this fascinating not-quite-empty world. This unputdownable story has everything-a well-imagined post-apocalyptic world, great characters, incredible suspense, and, of course, the fierce love of some very good dogs." (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)
