Wanted: One amazing forever home for one amazing sixth grader.

"My name is Gaby, and I'm looking for a home where I can invite my best friend over and have a warm breakfast a couple of times a week. Having the newest cell phone or fancy clothes isn't important, but I'd like to have a cat that I can talk to when I'm home alone."

Gaby Ramirez Howard loves volunteering at the local animal shelter. She plays with the kittens, helps to obedience train the dogs, and writes adoption advertisements so that the strays who live there can find their forever homes: places where they'll be loved and cared for, no matter what.

Gaby has been feeling like a bit of a stray herself, lately. Her mother has recently been deported to Honduras and Gaby is stuck living with her inattentive dad. She's confident that her mom will come home soon so that they can adopt Gaby's favorite shelter cat together. When the cat's original owners turn up at the shelter, however, Gaby worries that her plans for the perfect family are about to fall apart.

    I read this book because when I read the back of the book I wanted to know more about Gaby's story. This book is about a girl named Gaby who's mom got deported to Honduras and then her dad moved in which made Gaby's mom angry because he didn't even live with them but now that she wasn't there he moves in! Later Gaby's class volunteers to help at the Furry Friends animal shelter. Well that is all that I can tell you if you want to know more you'll have to read the book!

              Angela Cervantes did a wonderful job writing this book. I think she did best on the way it flowed together. Especially, when Gaby was surprised at the end, but I don't want to spoil anything by telling you too much. If you like these kinds of stories then you would like Gaby Lost and Found.

                Gaby, Lost and Found is a really good book. It is about a girl named Gaby and her life has been messed up ever since her mom got deported to Honduras and at the end her life tuns out to be perfect. I would recommend this book because it is that good :)
