    If you are looking for a beautiful, evocative, and diverse read PET is the book for you.We follow our main character Jam, a young girl who lives in Lucille, a town in a place that is America but not quite Lucille is special Before Jam was born there were monsters corrupt politicians, police shooters, murderers, rapists The lowest of the low Then the angels came people who got rid of the monsters and made their community a safe haven for everyone.Or so they believe.When Jam s mother paints a monster, it comes alive It looks horrifying, like everything a monster should be, but it says it s name is Pet and Pet is here to hunt a monster in Jam s best friend s house This is a short but incredibly sharp read full of beautiful diversity Jam is a black trans girl with loving parents who are always looking out for her She is such a thoughtful heroine to read from she is always trying to see the truth, and yet feels no less human for it, or like a mouthpiece I seriously loved the way this story was written, with such evocative writing that really draws the reader in Pet was also such an amazing character to read about and I loved the bib...

    3.5 I wanted to love this bookcover gorgeous monsters yes, please transgender protagonist yay Christopher Myers imprint just plain of course The writing was beautiful and I did love getting lost in the words, but the story felt a bit contrived The beginning was somewhat slow and the rest of the book was very heavy Personally, I think it would have been good to start the book when Jam is with Bitter s painting and then go back and introduce everyone and explain Jam s history By then the reader is invested in the action and is actively turning pages I think I would have cared even for Jam, her family and friends who were developed wonderfully I knew who the real monster was early on there was no big reveal for me and the plot was all too expected as it went along The dialogue and colorfu...

    This is such a short, quirky book, but it definitely works Despite this being just over 200 pages long, we get a full fledged, character driven story The characters are the true powerhouse in this book The author did an amazing job on these characters, because without them this book wouldn t have worked as well as it did Jam is off to help Pet destroy a monster that is located in her friend s Redemption house It brings a really strong message that I m sure many people c...

    Copy received from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Pet was a short but powerful read about a world where angels used to rule but are, for the most part, no longer around in society A girl named Jam accidentally summons Pet, a creature who is on the hunt for a monster hidden in Jam s friend Redemption s house This novel was really cool I loved the story and the message, but the characters were by far the strongest part of the book Pet has to do with family bonds and what happens when those bonds are severed In the end, a family member is betrayed by someone unexpected, and Pet turns out to be something that isn t expected Pet was probably the coolest character because it acted as metaphor for revenge and redemption While Pet wasn t necessarily a revenge story, those elements at the end made the book bet...

    There s something about this book that just feels different unique and otherwordly, a sort of fairy tale set in a world pretty much the same as ours, just with a few magical elements Akwaeke Emezi s debut novel, Freshwater, was so good because it felt so different from anything I d ever read this is the same, though being YA it s a bit accessible and straightforward.I love how simple the book is when it comes to plot and setting It s a pretty small cast of characters, and a straightforward plot a beast named Pet comes into this world to help Jam hunt down a monster residing in her best friend Redemption s home While characters keep secrets in this book, there s a refreshing openness in communication, so nothing feels like it s kept secret too long I love, for example, that as soon as Pet is born, Jam makes no effort to conceal it from her parents they find out immediately, and they sit her down the next morning to explain that Bitter s art has come to life before The town of Lucille is sort of like a microcosm of a slightly futuristic America, if America were to magically get its shit together before Jam was born, all the bad people here given the name monsters, though they re not literal monsters were weeded out by all the good people given the name angels At least theoretically speaking, there s no violence, no corruption, no inequality and s...

    Pet is an examination of who truly are the monsters amoung us and are there really any angels to be had Told in a way that I m not used, this story either seems to take place in the future or in an alternate present People live without fear of monsters bad people , poor morals, or even last names No surnames are given and even children who love their parents call them by their first names And their given names generally mean something The protagonist s name is Jam, likely because her parents think she s so sweet Her mother is named Bitter, due to her being conceived by rape Jam can speak out loud but prefers to sign instead and has an odd obsession with angels , the good people who brought on a time of peace, and monsters , the wicked people who were responsible for all of the turmoil in Lucielle, the land that they live in Essentially, honest politicians doing dishonest things to unseat dishonest politicians Jam s best friend and possible crush, Redemption, has an uncle who was once one of the original angels who fought against the monsters.Bitter is a painter and one day, Jam sneaks into her studio to see her new painting Its ugly and scary, and loo...
