'Jessi-cat' is the stirring tale of how the affection and attention of a constant loving companion allowed a little boy to start to connect to the world around him. General adult

A heart warming book about the relationship between Lorcan, a boy with selective mutism( he will only speak to certain people) and his cat. The book is interesting on a number of levels. As well as looking at how the cat helps the Lorcan to speak , it also looks at the way in which the family has to fight to get Lorcan the help he needs with his selective mutism and autism.
