Fall in love with the second installment in the Ava and Pip series, perfect for the young cat lover in your life. Written as short diary entries, this quick, heartwarming read follows 11 year old Ava as she learns patience and persistence are all part of growing up.

Ava Wren desperately wants a cat for her 11th birthday-but gets way more than she bargained for when she adopts a rescue cat.

When Ava Wren hears about an injured yellow tabby with mismatched ears, she becomes obsessed and wants to rescue him. She even picks out a perfect palindromic name: T-A-C-O-C-A-T. But when Taco joins the family, he doesn't snuggle or purr-all he does is hide. Worse, Ava's best friend starts hanging out with Zara, a new girl in fifth grade. Ava feels alone and writes an acclaimed story, "The Cat Who Wouldn't Purr" with her sister. What begins as exciting news turns into adisaster.

How can Ava make things right? And what about sweet, scared little Taco?
