My characters are a little boy and his mom. People are rioting in the street below. Daniel has to go to a shelter because his house is on fire. He has to go to a shelter to sleep and eat. He is worried about his cat.

I want everybody to read it because it is good. That is why I like it. I like it when the cat came back. It reminded me of when my cat came back. I like the illustrations because he uses different backgrounds and colors.

I recommend this book to cat lovers. They were rioting because these white guys beat up a black guy. He was poor and minding his own business. All the black people were mad and the Mexicans were getting madder too.
