My stop on the Petra and the Sewer Rat by G J Kemp blog tour today, will take the form of a book review.
Title: Petra and the Sewer Rats
Written by: G. J. Kemp
Cover illustrated by: Andrei
Published by: TB5 Publishing
A quick and easy read. Petra and the Sewer Rats is the story of a young girl who dares disobey the town of Fairacre’s rules to save its unwanted orphans. The town is ruled by men who treat women like property. Petra is a plucky and persistent character who has to deal with being entered into an arranged marriage and then discovers she is pregnant by another man.
This novella provides a fascinating peek into a dark and dangerous world. I found there were a lot of characters to keep track of in such a short book. These characters may have been more familiar to me and easier to identify with if I had read some of the other books. Most of the action is moved on by speech which moves at a rapid pace.
Petra and the Sewer Rats is a story of discovery and determination. I can imagine it as a play performed on the stage, Oliver Twist style.
I would like to thank Anne Cater from Random Things Through My Letterbox for inviting me to take part in this blog tour. Thank you.
