Wild Dogs

Christos Kalogirou

Wall Street Journal Bestseller

A desire for power and respect can make you do crazy things—especially in high school. After all, there’s no greater reward than the attention of your peers.

Christos Kalogirou was fifteen when his parents enrolled him in the Athol Murray College of Notre Dame, a prestigious co-ed boarding school tucked away in Saskatchewan. For Christos, high school was harder than real life. By sixteen, he had turned a desperate need to stand out into a business venture, reaping all the rewards he craved—until the rewards almost cost him everything.

In Wild Dogs, Christos shares the personal story that became an urban legend. Relatable and inspiring, this chronicle contains lessons for everyone who has made a mistake and wants to right the wrongs in their life. Whether you’re a current student or a graduate of the tumultuous teenage years, you’ll learn the power of redemption, the importance of friendships, and the value of working with the system instead of against it. This entertaining and insightful coming-of-age story will provide you with a perspective you didn’t know you needed and show you that life is a journey you can’t take too seriously.
