Lyla is having the worst year of her life and then her Mum announces they are moving to a strange new town. The only silver lining is the signs that a cat has made itself home in the new house. Lyla quickly finds out though that Shimmer is no ordinary cat....

This was a heartwarming but sad tale and in all honesty, made me go and give both my cats big (unwanted on their part) hugs. One of my cats went missing last year and it was awful, and reading this tale, I like to think Jet acted the same way as Shimmer. Thankfully she came home after a couple of days.

I related to Lyla, who recently lost her dad and just wanted comfort from a cat. Side entrance Shimmer.

I had no idea what to expect from these 86 pages but I didn’t expect a story that I got. It was touching to see the loyalty and love of an animal. A refreshing way to help look at loss.

About Alan Meredith

Alan Meredith lives in sleepy West Sussex with his wife and two children. He relocated there after suffering a psychosis back in 2000. Writing stories was a childhood love that he lost as he mistakenly believed that imagination had no place in the grown up world.

He likes taking reality and weaving fantastical elements into it. Alan’s writing reflects his belief that life is a journey of highs and lows and the idea that ‘life should be fair’ is an unrealistic expectation to give anyone, especially kids. If you are looking for the sugar coated ‘Happy Ever After’ you have come to the wrong place.
