Description

A NEW YORK TIMES EDITORS' CHOICE

"Immersive, profound, and beautifully plotted."-The Guardian

"A lingering, haunting book...A landmark in the small but potent canon of contemporary novels about unusual girls reckoning with themselves and the world around them."-Ruth Franklin, The New York Times

Set in New Zealand in 1980 and 2014, and probing themes of racism and misogyny, Pet is a dazzling and chilling psychological thriller by one of New Zealand's most acclaimed authors.

Like every other girl in her class, twelve-year-old Justine is drawn to her glamorous, charismatic new teacher and longs to be her pet. However, when a thief begins to target the school, Justine's sense that something isn't quite right grows ever stronger.

"Lovers of The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie and Donna Tartt's The Secret History will want to read this compelling novel by an award-winning New Zealand author."-Booklist (starred)

"Full of delicious mystery and thrill."-Meredith Boe, Chicago Review of Books
