The book tells the story of Gaby, a sixth grader whose mother has been deported to Honduras. Gaby is an outcast at school where classmates tease her about her family life. With everything falling apart, Gaby finds strength in her class’ service learning project at their local animal shelter. Her profiles of the animals help many find a “forever home,” which Gaby is in need of herself. The book humanizes the controversial issue of undocumented immigrants--themes include immigration, bullying, service learning and friendship.
