Other People’s Pets is a lovely life affirming read.
The author takes us on a journey to discover what family means. The novel shows us that a non traditional family is different, not better not worse just different. It can serves the same purpose,support when we need it and people to celebrate with when we achieve our goals and milestones.
The main character is an animal empath, she can feel what animals feel. La La is a resourceful person who adjusts from a non traditional childhood to a regular college student.
Due to no fault of her own she has to return to her previous non traditional way of life. She has to negotiate the different moral codes and emerge as the person she wants to become.
This is an easy read, most enjoyable, a good choice to distract during difficult times.
