In her first novel since The One and Only Ivan, winner of the Newbery Medal, Katherine Applegate delivers an unforgettable and magical story about family, friendship, and resilience.

Jackson and his family have fallen on hard times. There's no more money for rent. And not much for food, either. His parents, his little sister, and their dog may have to live in their minivan. Again.

Crenshaw is a cat. He's large, he's outspoken, and he's imaginary. He has come back into Jackson's life to help him. But is an imaginary friend enough to save this family from losing everything?

Beloved author Katherine Applegate proves in unexpected ways that friends matter, whether real or imaginary. This title has Common Core connections.

Reading this book was so interesting it was hard to stop reading. My only complaint is that it was a short read. Katherine Applegate the author is amazing and I recommend her other books like the one and only Ivan.

It was a short read! I wish it was three times as thick.

This such a heartwarming book. The boy in this book is living in his parents car with his sister and parents. He is reunited with his imaginary friend and together they both help each other through challenging times.
