"The word hype was invented to describe books like this." --Refinery29

The highly-anticipated, genre-defying new novel by award-winning author Akwaeke Emezi that explores themes of identity and justice. 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 this lesson all their life. But when Jam meets Pet, a creature made of horns and colors and claws, who emerges from one of her mother's paintings and a drop of Jam's blood, she must reconsider what she's been told. Pet has come to hunt a monster, and the shadow of something grim lurks in Redemption's house. Jam must fight not only to protect her best friend, but also to uncover the truth, and the answer to the question--How do you save the world from monsters if no one will admit they exist?

Acclaimed novelist Akwaeke Emezi makes their riveting and timely young adult debut with a book that asks difficult questions about what choices you can make when the society around you is in denial.

Review:

"Emezi's direct but tacit story of injustice, unconditional acceptance, and the evil perpetuated by humankind forms a compelling, nuanced tale that fans of speculative horror will quickly devour." --Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"This soaring novel shoots for the stars and explodes the sky with its bold brilliance." --Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

"A riveting and important read that couldn't be more well timed to our society's struggles with its own monsters." --School Library Journal, Starred Review

"Jam is also notable as a Black, trans protagonist in this important narrative that teens will want to read to gain some perspective on the modern political environment." -- Bulletin, Starred Review

"A unique science fiction tale." -Essence

"We are so lucky to be living at the same time that Akwaeke Emezi is making work.... PET, is a riveting and timely work answering the questions about how you go about the world when the world around you is in denial." - Out Magazine
