Publisher's Summary

The internationally acclaimed author of The House on Mango Street gives us a deeply moving tale of loss, grief, and healing.
The word "orphan" might not seem to apply to a 53-year-old woman. Yet this is exactly how Sandra feels as she finds herself motherless, alone like "a glove left behind at the bus station". What just might save her is her search for someone else gone missing: Marie, the black-and-white cat of her friend, Roz, who ran off the day they arrived from Tacoma. As Sandra and Roz scour the streets of San Antonio, posting flyers and asking everywhere, "Have you seen Marie?" the pursuit of this one small creature takes on unexpected urgency and meaning.
This title includes both English and Spanish versions, recorded by the author. Also includes a pdf with illustrations.

Dead still live in u & guide u tru lessonsmemories

This book is very short but looks long because the frst 9 chapters are in English and chapters 9-18 are in Spanish. Its hard to get into the story but once you're into it is a good fast "read". I love Sandra but he voice is not too exciting.
