2012 book 105

Diana Wynne Jones' Dogsbody
Neil Gaiman is absolutely correct in his introduction when he says that this is one of Jones' best books--which means it's an absolutely stellar book in every way (that pun was unintentional). It's the story of Sirius, the Dog Star, sentenced (for a crime he didn't commit) to live on Earth and find some mysterious object.
