Populated by a town full of quirky, yet recognizable citizens, and told through the voice of "the committee," Ivy vs Dogg: With a Cast of Thousands is a humorous and pointed account of a small town acting out both good and dubious intentions that hurdle the town to the point of breaking.
Teenage Ivy Simmons has a longstanding rivalry with Jimmy, "Dogg," Doggins, high school tennis star, and hometown hero. Ivy lives in the "Pink Ghetto," a low income stucco apartment complex that has haunted her every effort to best Dogg. Their years of sparring comes to a head when the town of Mudlick's annual Jr. Mr. Mayor election is announced and Ivy becomes the first female ever to run. Mudlick's busybody leaders, known as "the committee," do not approve, especially when Ivy reveals an embarassing secret. "The committee," as it has since the town founding, inserts itself into all matters both personal and public, and they feel no compunction about ruining Ivy's candidacy on the grounds of the shame she's likely to bring to Mudlick. Despite a hesitancy on Dogg's part to compete against his childhood rival, the pair engage campaign events that escalate in absurdity. Between a gruesome topiary display set up by the town's most prominent (and reclusive) matriarch and the election, emotions run high, squeezing Ivy and Dogg from all sides and forcing them to make the most adult decision of their lives.
