After two months, Mia hasn't gotten over the death of her cat, Sandy. Then her friend Emily announces that her cat is going to have kittens. Mia falls in love with one of the kittens--but is she ready to let another cat in her life?


Why wouldn't anyone want a kitten!? Mia recently lost her beloved kitty, Sandy, and wasn't quite ready to open her heart to a kitten, even when her best friend's cat had kittens.

Based on the cover, I expected this book to be too soft and fluffy, even for me, but I was delightfully surprised! The writing really expressed the sadness of loss and the joys of kittens, and I felt all the emotions along with Mia.

The story is very cat-focused and will appeal to a small audience, and the story was very predictable, but the writing was quality and I will certainly recommend it to my cat-loving students.
