    Description

    National Book Award Finalist

    Stonewall Book Award Winner

    "[A] beautiful, genre-expanding debut...Pet is a nesting doll of creative possibilities." (The New York Times)

    The award-winning, genre-defying novel by the New York Times best-selling author of The Death of Vivek Oji that explores themes of identity and justice and asks: How do you share the truth when the world around you is in denial?

    Pet is here to hunt a monster. Are you brave enough to look? 

    There are no monsters anymore, or so the children in the city of Lucille are taught. Jam and her best friend, Redemption, have grown up with the lesson that the city is safe for everyone. But when Jam meets Pet, a creature who some might call monstrous but, in reality, is anything but, she must reconsider what she's been told. Pet has emerged from one of her mother's paintings to hunt a true monster - and the shadow of something grim lurks in Redemption's house. No one has encountered monsters in years, though, and Jam's quest to protect her best friend and uncover the truth is met with doubt and disbelief. 

    This award-winning novel from a rising-star author asks: What really makes a monster, and how do you save the world from something if no one will admit it exists?

    Excellent

    A great story brought to life by a great narrator. It deals with important topics in a simplification that still offers nuances, completely adapted to children and essential to adults. I loved the utopian city in which it is set (truly, it shouldn't be a utopia, just the ordinary life), and the hope that is left when the story is over.

    A book with good messages

    Definitely a young adult book but there are good lessons that everyone can benefit from hearing.

    Important message

    As a child abuse survivor I found this book to be comforting. I found the characters voices to be funny. At first it came across as annoyingly over-pc but once they got into the nitty gritty, I really loved the mixture of magical realism, important issues, and the narrations.

    Unlike anything I’ve ever read!

    So creative, imaginative, and necessary. The author envisioned a better future and then wrestled with what happens when that future becomes corrupted. A must read for adults and young people alike.

    Excellent

    I very much enjoyed this book, though I was rather surprised by the amount of cursing. Mind, I curse a lot myself so not a problem for me, but maybe a thing of which to be aware.
    I love the diversity of characters, in particular the kind treatment of neurodivergance.

    Boring

    This was a disappointing book, I had high expectations based on the ratings.

    The writing was dull, and annoying at times (specially when Pet was constantly bringing up the "hunt" talk for the 100th time), I did not connect with the characters,I get the big picture of the story but it lacked details and depth and the author didn't bother with it, there needed a better character development (since all the characters felt lifeless) it was too short. I do not recommend.

    Would have been better with a different narrator.

    I really enjoyed this book, but I felt it would have been better if I didn't have to spend the first half adjusting to the narrator's halting way of reading. It felt like I was listening to a young child reading aloud because of his odd way of spacing between words. It was impossible to listen to, bit it was annoying.

    Unexpectedly complex with serious ideas for kids.

    Unexpectedly good, reminds me of A Swiftly Tilting Planet in it's exploration of good and evil.
