Book Synopsis



One amazing forever home for one amazing sixth grader.

My name is Gaby, and I'm looking for a home. Having the nicest clothes or cell phone isn't important, but I'd like to have a cat that I can talk to when I'm home alone.

Her flyers help the cats and dogs there find their forever homes: places where they'll be loved and cared for, no matter what. Gaby is in need of a forever home herself. Her mother has recently been deported to Honduras and Gaby doesn't know where to turn. Meanwhile, Gaby's favorite shelter cat, Feather, needs a new place to live. Gaby would love to adopt her -- but if Gaby doesn't have a place that feels like home to her, how can she help Feather?Gaby necesita un hogar estable. Su madre ha sido deportada a Honduras y Gaby se siente perdida. Mientras tanto, un gato del refugio de animales donde Gaby trabaja necesita ayuda. ¿Podrá Gaby adoptarlo?
