    Cassandra has a secret: she can make psychic connections with animals! The only people who know are her mom, her dog, and her best friend, but situations keep cropping up where she can help animals that are pets, and she has to decide whether she can reveal her abilities to other people. This story has a lot going for it: a spunky, young protagonist of color; positive portrayal of a non-traditional home life; and oodles of information about taking good care of pets mixed in with the story. The warmly colored, cute, rounded artwork stays nicely grounded in reality considering some supernatural aspects of the story. Simply, it invites the reader into Cassandra's mind. The story also touches upon feelings of jealousy of the way a parent spends their time, as well as how to be supportive of a friend when they're doing something that's good for them but not ideal for you. All of these great themes are packed in with loads of heart and excellent pacing. Any animal lover will devour this in two bites. Grades 4-6. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
