Boys Are Dogs is a book about a girl named Anabelle who have to cope with her new lifestyle, a new school, a new dog and all the messy boys. She finds out she can use her dog-training manual to control boys too. Disney Channel Original Movie Zapped, starring Zendaya as main character Zoey Stevens, is based upon this book.
Annabelle's all-girls elementary was very different from Birchwood Middle School where the boys run through the halls like wild animals. But with a little experimenting, Annabelle realizes that like her new puppy, maybe boys can be trained too.
Featuring Annabelle’s hilarious take on friendship, boys, and her all-new life, this novel and/or survival guide perfectly captures the joy and agony of junior high school. And it might just teach you how to tame the wildest beast of all, the teenage boy.
