Gabi Breinig and her mother, Dr. Sherri Young, wanted to write a children’s book illustrating the heartache and grief they endured with a tragic explosion and fire that decimated everything they owned. Their collaboration led them to come up with “Lucky” (published by WestBow Press), a true story about a little girl finding her cat after losing everything in a house fire.

This is a child centered, true story about a little girl who lost everything she owned in a house fire. Weeks later, she found her beloved cat, Lucky, living among the ruins. In the midst of a huge tragedy, the little girl found her furry friend, as well as hope and courage to move forward in her new life.

“There are many heartaches and tragedies in the world. Our family faced a huge tragedy. We found a little piece of hope in a world that had taken so much away. We want to give others hope and trust in God,” Young says.

The publication of “Lucky” aims to make readers feel grateful for what they have, hopeful for their own futures and the protection of God in their lives. For more details about the book, please visit,
