Upon browsing shelf upon shelf for new novels, perhaps a new offering by James Bowen will spark some interest. 'A Street Cat Named Bob' is a brand new novel about a young man's cat and how it saved his life.

Though dogs have the reputation for being man's best friend, this case proves otherwise, as this cat managed to turn a man's life around completely from not having an income to becoming a successful author.

Before his book publishing, Bowen was a homeless man who befriended an ill cat while out on the streets. Not just a companion, Bob became Bowen's salvation from a life of drug addiction, which further proves you can never underestimate the power of animals. It's a truly powerful read and worth the recommendation.
