Soo Min has come from Korea to live with her new American adoptive family, who do not know many Korean words, and Soo Min knows no English. But Goyangi--Korean for cat--shares a language of friendship and playfulness. Goyangi helps Soo Min adjust to her new life, but, then, Goyangi slips out of their home into the huge outside world--dangerous for a feline unfamiliar with life on the streets. Soo Min and her adoptive mother search far and wide for their loyal friend. Can love bring a lost friend home? You'll find out when you read this touching tribute to the loving bonds of family and friendship.
