Blog Tour: Tell Your Story in Gifs: The Life and (Medieval) Times of Kit Sweetly by Jamie Pacton

Can I just say that you all should know how much I love this book. The Life and (Medieval) Times of Kit Sweetly is one of my favorite books in 2020! Talk about 2020 being a good book year so far. If you need more persuasion, check out Jamie Pacton’s book in GIF form!

The Life and (Medieval) Times of Kit Sweetly

Kit Sweetly slays sexism, bad bosses, and bad luck to become a knight at a medieval-themed restaurant.

Working as a wench―i.e. waitress―at a cheesy medieval-themed restaurant in the Chicago suburbs, Kit Sweetly dreams of being a knight like her brother. She has the moves, is capable on a horse, and desperately needs the raise that comes with knighthood, so she can help her mom pay the mortgage and hold a spot at her dream college.

Company policy allows only guys to be knights. So when Kit takes her brother’s place and reveals her identity at the end of the show, she rockets into internet fame and a whole lot of trouble with the management. But the Girl Knight won’t go down without a fight. As other wenches join her quest, a protest forms. In a joust before Castle executives, they’ll prove that gender restrictions should stay medieval―if they don’t get fired first.
