Abigail Iris has a half-birthday coming up, and she knows it's the perfect excuse to ask for the adorable kitten up for adoption at her local farmer's market. After all, everyone else in her life seems to be getting something new: her Only friend Rebecca has a new baby brother on the way, and her brother Eddie has a new girlfriend named Molly. But Abigail finds that once the kitten is hers, he brings with him lots of new responsibilities and life lessons, too. Full of new beginnings, last good byes, and fresh starts, Abigail Iris: The Pet Project has just as much joy and heart as the first adventure.
