Pet by Akwaeke Emezi; Narrated by Christopher Myers
Listening Library / Random House Children’s Books
Publication Date: May 21, 2019
The residents of Lucille claim they’ve eradicated the monsters. Angels of a generation past ensured the safety of all, Jam was taught that in school. Statues honor the children whose names had been hashtagged battle cries, those who had died at the hands of the everyday monsters in a time of great violence and cruelty, back before the revolution. But then Pet appears, clawing forth from Jam’s mother’s painting, a hulking and feathered creature born of Jam’s blood, a hunter in search of a monster in Jam’s plain sight. Can Jam protect her best friend when joining Pet’s hunt means confronting a truth that others would rather stay buried?
