Sandi Ward’s shrewdly observed, funny, and wonderfully
touching novel tells of a fractured family, a teenage boy,
and a remarkable cat whose loyalty knows no bounds . . .
A boy and his cat. It’s an unconventional friendship,
perhaps, but for Charlie and Lily, it works beautifully. It
was Charlie who chose Lily from among all the cats in the
shelter. He didn’t frown, the way other humans did, when he
saw her injured back leg, the legacy of a cruel previous
owner. Instead, Charlie insisted on rescuing her. Now Lily
wants to do the same for Charlie.
She’s the only one who’s seen the bruises on Charlie’s body.
If she knew who was hurting him, she’d scratch their eyes
out. But she can’t fix this by herself. Lily needs to get
the rest of the family to focus on Charlie—not easy when
they’re wrapped up in their own problems. Charlie’s mother
kicked his father out weeks ago and has a new boyfriend who
seems charming, but is still a stranger. Oldest son Kevin
misses his father desperately. Victoria, Charlie’s sister,
also has someone new in her life, and Lily is decidedly
suspicious. Even Charlie’s father, who Lily loves dearly, is
Lily knows what it’s like to feel helpless. But she also
knows that you don’t always have to be the biggest or the
strongest to fight fiercely for the ones you love . . .
