Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
Sumire Iwaya is a 27-year-old career woman who finds Momo sleeping in a cardboard box outside her condo. She takes him into her apartment, feeds him, and after falling in love with his curly brown hair and puppy dog eyes, decides to keep him as her pet. The rub: Momo is a 15-year-old boy. Momo is not Sumire's slave: their relationship is a tad more complicated than that. Sumire's job is to cook for Momo, give him money, wash his hair, and yell at him when he does something stupid; Momo's job is to act stupid so Sumire can yell at him, greet her at the door, lay his head on her lap, and cuddle up in bed with her. They haven't had sex (yet)—Momo because he's biding his time, Sumire because it's not right to have sex with your pet. Sumire is prickly, but likable; she feels trapped in a situation where she needs to marry a man who's smarter, richer and taller than her, and having Momo as a pet allows her to blow off steam. Momo is much smarter than he looks (and acts); despite behaving like your average cocker spaniel, he is the dominant partner. Sumire shows every sign of starting to care deeply for Momo; Momo shows every sign that he, too, cares deeply for Momo. Tramps Like Us is a funny, entertaining read. I must say that certain aspects of Sumire and Momo's relationship creeped me out, but perhaps that just brings home the fact that I'm a typical uptight American. Tramps Like Us contains adult situations and lots of vulgar language. Recommended for libraries with manga collections that cater to older readers. KLIATT Codes: A—Recommended for advanced students and adults. 2000, Tokyopop, 192p. illus., Ages 17 to adult.

    Sexy and funny

    I really like this book because it gives women power in a way. I thought about it and even a guy could find this story sexy. I asked some of my guy friends what they tought of being a woman's pet and they loved it. The entire time I am reading this there is a certain amount of sexual tension between Momo and Sumire. It keeps you into the books but never goes to far. It gets you all worked up then Sumire beats up Momo and it adds for a good laugh.

    So cute

    This manga is so cute. The story is so warm and fuzzy. It's funny and romantic, and the characters are so hilarious at times. It's a little weird, but you have to be optimistic. When didn't YOU want a cute guy as a pet??
