If you can make it to page 60 you will devour the book. It will capture your attention and hold you hostage till the last page. A sweet, soft and engaging story of a cat that strays from home. The book takes off after she trys talking to moon about her dilemma of not knowing where her home is. It starts to layer in other characters and THEN becomes fascinating.
