Lost Cat

A True Story of Love, Desperation, and GPS Technology
By Caroline Paul
Illustrated By Wendy MacNaughton

This is a very sweet book. It drew me in, and I read it in one sitting.

The author is going through a rough time, when her cat seems to dessert her. It becomes her mission to find him. She feels she must uncover where he is going, but also why he left her. 
She becomes obsessed, much to the dismay of those around her. 

With the help of posters, persistence, time, and GPS tracking devices, she does manage to get answers. However, the answers may not be the ones she wanted. Be careful what you wish for.

I love this book. It is written with honesty and humour, and with love.
