Description

A poignant tale of a boy's struggle to keep a stray cat from harm.

In Billy's small town, stray cats are running wild, and there's growing pressure to get rid of them. The school bullies don't even hesitate to throw rocks at the poor creatures! So when Billy finds a wounded, starving kitten and sneaks her home, he has to be extra-careful to keep her hidden while he nurses her back to health. However precious little Conga is to him, he knows his dad would take her away if he discovered her, cozy and warm in Billy's bedroom.

As long as she stays hidden, Conga's out of harm's way, but what about all the other cats? Can Billy and his friends face the bullies, show the town the importance of caring for abandoned animals, and find a safe haven for strays?

A soon-to-be-classic animal story from the author of Dog Lost.

Praise for Ingrid Lee:

"A gripping, fast-paced story full of appealingly raw emotion and youthful devotion." -Booklist

"A tough book, a tender book, and one I shan't forget." -Michael Morpurgo, author of War Horse

"Much more than a breathless page-turner. It's a brutally honest novel... And Lee brings together her winning, motley cast, human and animal, for a wonderfully heart-rousing ending. I loved it." -Ann M. Martin, author of A Dog's Life
