Reading Challenge Recs
The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness features one of YA’s all-time greatest loyal pets (“Poo, Todd”) in Manchee.
Sir Pat will win your heart with his bearded whiskers and judgmental stares in Being Mary Bennet by J.C. Peterson.
It’s easy to dig up political corruption when you’ve got a loyal scent hound like Achoo on your side in Mastiff by Tamora Pierce.
In Whistle by E. Lockhart and Manuel Preitano, a stray Great Dane gets superpowers along with the main character and creates a connection that goes beyond man’s best friend.
A character’s care and competence with his animal companion ramps up the Swoonworthy Scale in Sharon Hinck’s Hidden Current.
We’re suckers for fat old family dogs like the one in I’ll Be There by Holly Goldberg Sloan.

Also suggesting Erin Bow’s Plain Kate, which has a very loyal and heroic cat!
Oh, of course! I’ve updated that BR to include the loyal pet tag. ☺️
