"This is a gorgeous read in every sense of the word, each and every page brimming with character and life." -IGN
Fresh out of art school and creatively unfulfilled, Molly is stuck in the suburbs with her parents and their cat, Pishi. When she is offered an opportunity to cat sit, she sees it as a way to get closer to her friends who live in the Los Angeles Arts District while fulfilling her dream of making a living as an artist.
- Art is GORGEOUS!
- Beautiful settings: art, home, cityscapes
- CUTE kitties, each with their own personality
- Doesn't shy from showing the not so cute side of pet sitting
- Relatable AF
- Slow-burn romance *SQUEE*
- Supportive, loving family
- Understandable BFF that's more than a stereotype & lets Molly have it when needed
- Seriously wonderful father/daughter moment
- Clash between traditional and modern values, goals,
I can't believe it, I actually agree with IGN. None of my gamer friends must know. EVER.
This kind of searching for oneself, place, and purpose while navigating modern conveniences is what I beg for from New Adult. And here it is! WHOOP!
Favoritest scene: Molly coming home drunk from a party crying and having a heart to heart with her father.
Her problems making friends now that she's grown out of school and shit?! *Raises Hand*
The problem with getting together with people when you're all working?! *Raises Both Hands*
Used to being a rising star, not knowing where it all went wrong and you fell off?!
*Waves Hands Like I just don't...lolsob*
I was a straight A book nerd off to college a year early. Now I'm working in a call center to survive with no degree and debt I can't pay off. To say I emphasize is an understatement.
The only thing I'll say about this whole Millennial business people are bemoaning: The Catcher in the Rye generation shouldn't throw stones.
The "Is she flirting with me?" cat reminds me of this art book I had a kid. Well, borrowed from the library as much as possible. It was all about how to draw cats and kittens, both realistic and cartoon-y. In it, there was this blue-eyed fluffy white cat in the "draw me like one of your french girls" pose. I was pretty decent at drawing her too since I was just obsessed at getting it right.
Anyways. This along with Disney's Robin Hood and Lion King 2 reminds me, as Molly finds out, that being attracted to something with fur once in a while doesn't actually make one a furry.
