Serendipity and Me by Judith L. Roth

Into the Wild

Read Serendipity and Me Online Free - Sara has always loved cats. She surrounds herself with pictures of cats, stuffed cats, even cat-headed slippers. But she’s never been allowed to have a real cat of her own. Her father has always told her no, for reasons he won’t explain.

So when a fluffy snowball of a kitten darts through their front door and into her life, Sara believes her dream might finally come true. But convincing her father to break his strict No Cats policy seems impossible. She has less than a week to persuade him that this kitten is exactly what their lonely, broken family of two needs to heal.

Told in lyrical, spare verse, Serendipity & Me is a sparkling novel that elegantly handles the topic of loss for a middle grade audience.

Not ashamed to admit it. But the time I got to the end of this story told in verse, I was a 28-year-old middle school English teacher curled up in bed with her own cat, crying. Yes. This book made me cry real tears. It tugged on every emotional heartstring I had, but it was WORTH it. This book, w...

This book is about a girl named Sara and she's wanted a cat for a long time but her dad wouldn't let her because her mom was in a car accident going to adopt a cat and h just couldn't bear the thought. This book was a book of poetry and it was definitely a tear jerker. I love how they wrote this...

Not only that, but Sara gets very ill and has to miss playing Wendy in a school production of Peter Pan, where she stars opposite a boy she lik...

I didn't cry when I read this book. Just kidding, I was totally sniffing at the end. This is beautiful. The first time I picked this book up was last year, but I realized it was a poetry book, and I immediately put it back on the shelf. Don't make this mistake. I decided to read it again this year...

Ooh, I read this book in one night!!!!!!!!!!! It was that good! I'm a sucker for Kittens so I grabbed this book base on the photo. I fanned through it later to find that it looked like poetry. Sometimes I get turned off in that kind of format but I decided to read it anyways. I was so surprised!...

I loved this book. I have had it for 2 years and I read it every single year because this book is so good. This book is about a girl named Sara whose Mom has died. Now, she needs somebody to hold on to when times get rough. When a cute little white furball comes to her door, Sara instantly falls...

I loved this book. It had every component --- laughter, tears, and relatability. This book is proof that pets save us, just as much as we save them (and probably more). I am now a HUGE Judith Roth fan!

This story revolves around a young girl named Sara, whose mother died several years ago. She loves cats, and i...
