Restore Me By Tahereh Mafi

The crew has one mission: stay alive, and take down Aric’s armed and armored fleet.”

When a new kitty sitter arrives and a glamorous movie starlet goes missing, it’s up to Dog Man and Cat Kid to save the day! Will these heroes stay hot on the trail, or will Petey, the World’s Most Evil Cat, send them barking up the wrong tree?”
