Jack is an eleven year old boy who lives in the city in a low income neighborhood. His mother works late into the evening most nights to scratch out a living for the two of them. Jack often spends most nights alone, seeking comfort and protection with his beloved pet, Miss Kitty, who he talks to and understands everything she says in return. At his elementary school are two older boys who constantly bully him and exploit him. These boys are juvenile delinquents who know how to play the system to their advantage. He does not want to worry his mother about them and tries to hide the abuse from other people as well. One day his mother discovers the bruising that Jack received from the two boys and contacts the school nurse. When she discovers that the boys are set free and can find Jack to hurt him again, she decides to send him to live with his Uncle Kevin in rural Texas. Once there, Jack befriends the farm animals. Uncle Kevin does not think it strange that Jack can communicate with the animals, since his deceased wife once did the same, and sets out to teach Jack how to stand up to those who seek to bully others. Under the old farmer's care, the boy grows physically and spiritually until the day a tragedy happens. When a hawk that has been terrorizing the farm animals and killing their young carries away Miss Kitty, Uncle Kevin is powerless to help Jack as the boy struggles to cope with his loss. In the end, Jack has to learn to overcome his fears as he deals with a town bully, fights to protect the rest of the animals from the hawk, and begins to socialize with people outside of the home.
