Gaby Lost and Found is the wonderful story of a young girl named Gaby. This story is about Gaby's adventures after her mother illegally crosses the border and is then taken back to Honduras after Gaby is born. While her mother tries to save up enough money to hire a coyote (a person who smuggles people across the border), Gaby struggles to live a normal life even though her father barely tries to care for her and she has to care for herself.
While Gaby is working hard to try and live normally, she meets Feather, a cat. Gaby feels as if Feather is her equal. Feather was abandoned on a side road with no parents, food, or water and Gaby feels as if that is what happened to her.
