Some life. Travis soon discovers that only a few oddballs show any interest in him: Cole, a talker who soon makes himself scarce- Hector, a strange kid whose ears stick out- and Prinny, a girl as scraggly as her skinny ponytail. Nobody you can really call a friend. And then theres Hud, the toughest, nastiest bully in school, who hates townies and promises to make Traviss life an utter misery. But Travis doesnt care. Hes got his funeral face, a tight mask that gives away nothing and allows him to hide his feelings.

Funeral face comes in handy, especially with parents and other adults who think they know what youre feeling every minute of the day.But funeral face can also make him reckless, and Travis decides to visit the dangerous Gulley Cove, with its treacherous wharf and its tumbledown fish shacks, which some of the kids say are haunted. Instead of ghosts, Travis discovers a colony of feral cats, sickly and starving, and unused to kindness.

Putting aside his own problems to care for them is about to bring Travis more satisfaction-and more danger-than he ever would have thought possible.A stunning first childrens novel, The Nine Lives of Travis Keating is a moving story about coping with grief. But more than that, its about belonging, learning to be a friend, and finding bravery in the most unexpected of places.
