Barn Cat is part of the Gemma Open Door for Literacy series.
A young girl leaves Tokyo with her mother in 1979, carrying her pink suitcase to a new home with a new father and sister, on a dairy farm in Wisconsin. Thirty-three years later, her mother's belongings are found packed into boxes, her furniture draped in white sheets. Without so much as a note, she has left the two sisters connected by history, by some idea of family, to look for her. What happens when people lose their way home? Like a little barn cat, they grab onto a second family ... and start again.
