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

"A unique science fiction tale." -Essence

"With great tenderness, Pet questions a society silenced by denial." -Observer

"Brilliant." -The Washington Post

"By far the most striking of the [National Book Award] finalists is PET, a sinister morality tale by Akwaeke Emezi." -The Wall Street Journal

"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

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

"A compelling, nuanced tale that fans of speculative horror will quickly devour." --Publishers Weekly, 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." --The Bulletin, Starred Review

"Emezi's characters are diverse in race, physical ability and especially gender.... Readers might see in Jam's surroundings a version of a world that they, like Jam, might choose to fight for." --BookPage, Starred Review

"A haunting and poetic work of speculative fiction." --The Horn Book

About the Author

Akwaeke Emezi makes their young adult debut with Pet on the inaugural Make Me a World list. An honoree on the National Book Foundation's "5 Under 35" list, a long-list nominee for the Carnegie Medal for Excellence, and a short-list nominee for the Center for Fiction's First Novel Prize, Akwaeke continues to receive accolades for their adult debut, Freshwater. The autobiographical novel also received rave reviews from the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the New Yorker, and the Los Angeles Times, among others, as well as starred reviews from Library Journal and Booklist. Their sophomore adult novel, The Death of Vivek Oji, is forthcoming in 2020 from Riverhead.
