Staff Review: Pet


by Catherine Chidgey

Review by Livvy

Catherine Chidgey is such a wonderful storyteller! Pet has everything you could ever want in a psychological thriller – it’s not heavy or complicated, but untrustworthy characters keep you on your toes, and you’re never quite sure what awaits you on the next page. The unreliable narration of 12-year-old Justine only adds to this eerie yet enticing feeling. To add to this, Chidgey interweaves brilliant social commentary throughout these pages, resulting in the perfect balance of entertainment and reflection. A great read!
