One of the approx. Of course I knew their reading level would change. A child who started off liking Junie B. Jones for the comedy may later want nothing but dark fantasy, and still later want endless stories about children like herself. A child who started off racking the shelves for books about dogs may turn to other nonfiction sports! What did I think would happen?

Gaby Ramirez Howard is having a rough time. Since her mom was deported to Honduras, she has had to live with her dad. The Gomez family loves Gaby and would like her to live with them—at least until her mom returns. But Mr. Howard takes his responsibilities seriously, and refuses. Things begin to change, however, when the girls take on the local animal shelter as their sixth-grade project.
Thank you! Her physical and emotional needs are barely met at home. Like her mom, Gaby is an animal lover, and she develops her writing talent by crafting adoption profiles for the cats and dogs. A timely, touching and nuanced portrayal of real-life challenges experienced by children in mixed-status families. There was a problem adding your email address. Please try again.
