There Is No Dog Chapter 7 Summary

  • Lucy's on the phone with her mom. Her mom is one of those old stuffy Stepford Wives-type ladies who just wants her daughter to get a boyfriend already.
  • Strangely, Lucy looks nothing like the rest of the family. She seems to have stepped out of a 16th-century painting. She's 21, beautiful, doesn't know it, and a virgin—partially because her beauty puts off most men.
  • Yeah, sure. Uh-huh.
  • After an angry conversation with her mom, Lucy runs off to work and to get breakfast at a local cafe. She's obviously a happy camper because all it takes is some toast to repair her mood.
