Crenshaw by Katherine Applegate
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
How does anyone cope with the imminent vision of living in the family van... again? Having an old friend around can help, except this old friend is imaginary and a large cat named Crenshaw. Jackson's voice rings true, filled with hope and worry and a slight tinge of despair. The downside was that this felt a little too message-driven (probably my read, as an adult, and not that of the target reader).
