What drew me to this book was the cover. Simply a little boy and a huge cat sitting on a bench looking into the distance. It looked like it would be a fun read. It was and also a very hard look at a segment of society that I rarely come in contact with. This is about Jackson, the little boy, and how his family has fallen onto hard times and have to live out of their minivan for a while. Enter Crenshaw, the huge cat, who’s Jackson’s imaginary friend on a mission to salvage whatever hope and truth there is in this sudden down turn of events. It’s an inspiring story as well as a compelling tale to look deeper into our souls, hopes and dreams and see the cat that might be out there trying to get our attention. Life is full of facts, but sometimes the harder stuff is not so easily defined. This is a good book, a quick read and will warm your heart.
