It's the summer of 1983 and the suburbs of Houston are reeling from a disastrous hurricane. But the storm brought more than wind and floodwaters. In the swamps that surround Clear Lake a brutal and possibly supernatural killer is gathering strength, and waiting for the full moon. The focus of his bloodlust is fifteen year old Mark Eckert. Reckless to a fault, with a knack for making spectacularly bad decisions, Mark had planned to spend that last summer before high school wandering the swamps with his friends and his beloved dog Max. But after a chance encounter with the lunatic, Mark's summer becomes a time of terror and tragedy. With his life on the line, Mark's courage will be tested to his limits and beyond as he struggles to survive the hottest days of summer.… (mere)

It is the summer of 1983 as small, but powerful, Hurricane Alicia makes landfall at Kemah and Clear Lake City near Houston. But for Mark Eckart and his friends it is not the hurricane that blows an ill wind, but what comes with it. For the storm leaves a mystery that begins with dismember and partially eaten dead bodies. Is it a supernatural being or a very real and human mass murderer? These events begin a summer that will change the Mark and his friends forever. The book is a quick read with a good plot and plenty of action to keep the reader moving. The characters are well developed and the story will keep you engaged. For me, though, having lived in this area during Alicia, it is the setting that makes the book and the story real. McKinney has done a great job capturing the essence of the Texas Gulf Coast and that makes the story more convincing. ( )

I won this book in the LT Early Reviewers club. When I chose it, I didn't realize it was YA, which I generally don't read. It took me some time to actually get into the story, but once I did it was an enjoyable read. Just enough horror to keep a young mind occupied while not being overly gory. I would recommend this book to pre-teen boys and girls. ( )

I had a lot of trouble getting into this book. It felt stiff to me and didn't really feel much with or for the main character. ( )

An enjoyable (slightly-older) YA book that is a great alternative to most of the YA sludge that is out there. ( )

Dog Days is a small town Gulf Coast take on the classic werewolf tale that does a better job at telling a teenage boy growing up over the summer than it does the horror. A stronger (and less confused) horror villain in the werewolf would have helped, as it was, the teenage bullies came across as much more menacing, but maybe that was the point. ( )
