Goodnight Boy

By Nikki Sheehan

Published Jul 2017


A tale of two very different worlds, both shattered by the loss of loved ones.  Tragic, comic and full of hope, thanks to a dog called Boy.

The kennel has been JC’s home ever since his new adoptive father locked him inside.

As the hours and days pass he tells his dog, Boy, the story of how he came to this country: his family, the orphanage and the Haitian earthquake that swept everything away.  How, after, his adoptive mother Melanie rescued him, life started to feel normal again.

Until JC did something bad, so bad the he and Boy were banished to the kennel.


Brilliantly conceived and beautifully constructed.

Brian Conaghan


A hauntingly original and heartbreakingly beautiful novel.
