In the second Ava book, Ava's diary is centered on the adoption of Taco Cat (a palindrome) from the local shelter. The family tries to make a pet out of the scared and scarred cat, while Ava also copes with her best friend's new friend, and the jealousy she feels.

We are reading Ava's diary. Although she is exceptionally articulate for an 11 year old, Weston captures the thought process and feelings of an 11 year old perfectly.

A delightful book, filled with likable characters.

(Spoiler warning!)
What is the right thing to do, when two people want opposite things, and both are in the right? After Ava has legally adopted Taco Cat, and had him for several weeks and the whole family has grown to love him, it turns out he was a runaway pet from an elderly widow, who misses him terribly, and had owned him since his kittenhood four years ago. What would Ava do? What would you or I do? ( )
