The internationally acclaimed author of The House on Mango Street gives us a deeply moving tale of loss, grief, and healing: a lyrically told, richly illustrated fable for grown-ups about a womanâ€™s search for a cat who goes missing in the wake of her motherâ€™s death. The word â€śorphanâ€ť might not seem to apply to a fifty-three-year-old woman. Yet this is exactly how Sandra feels as she finds herself motherless, alone like â€śa glove left behind at the bus station.â€ť What just might save her is her search for someone else gone missing: Marie, the black-and-white cat of her friend, Roz, who ran off the day they arrived from Tacoma. As Sandra and Roz scour the streets of San Antonio, posting flyers and asking everywhere, â€śHave you seen Marie?â€ť the pursuit of this one small creature takes on unexpected urgency and meaning. With full-color illustrations that bring this transformative quest to vivid life, Have You Seen Marie? showcases a beloved authorâ€™s storytelling magic, in a tale that reminds us how love, even when it goes astray, does not stay lost forever.
